INTRODUCTION 簡介

 

Founded in 1983, the Hong Kong Composers' Guild (HKCG) is a professional association of serious composers with objectives to promote and cultivate music composition in Hong Kong. Apart from organising concerts, publishing scores and producing recordings of works by Hong Kong composers, HKCG also takes an active part in arousing interest in composition especially amongst youths and in developing music as a vital creative art form in Hong Kong. Organising composition competitions and sending composers to the community and schools are its regular activities. HKCG works closely with professional musicians and institutions in not just concert performances, but orchestration workshops, field trips, forum, commissions, and community services. As one of the cultural ambassadors of our city, HKCG has also established strong links with many international organisations and has played a significant role in international music exchanges. HKCG's predecessor is the Hong Kong Section of the Asian Composers League which was founded in 1973. HKCG is also a National Section of the International Society for Contemporary Music. It also co-operates with RTHK to send a composer as representative to the International Rostrum of Composers each year. Since July 2010, HKCG has become one of the Year Grantees of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. 

 

香港作曲家聯會成立於1983年,是本地嚴肅音樂作曲家為培育及推介音樂創作而成立的一個專業組織。除定期舉辦新作品音樂會、作曲比賽、研習班、講座展覽、委約創作、出版樂譜及唱片錄音外,香港作曲家聯會更致力提高大眾、特別是青年人對作曲的興趣,並定期指派作曲家到學校培訓下一代創作人材,及在香港將音樂作為一種極為重要的創意藝術來推動其各方面的發展。作為香港的文化大使之一,香港作曲家聯會已經與許多國際組織建立緊密的聯繫,並在國際現代音樂交流方面擔當一個非常重要的角色。香港作曲家聯會的前身是成立於1973年的亞洲作曲家同盟香港分會。它也是國際現代音樂協會的會員國(地區),也與香港電台合作,每年派出一名作曲家代表香港出席「國際作曲家論壇」。從2010年7月起,香港作曲家聯會正式成為香港藝術發展局年度資助藝團。
