Viva!Pipers is a wind quintet comprising five young Hong Kong musicians. Individually, they are all freelance players in orchestras such as the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, the Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra, the Six Arts Orchestra and the Macao Orchestra. They bring lively music into the community and involve their audiences in their music through playing, singing, dancing, storytelling and interactive performances. They were the guest performers at the 2014 Harvest Celebration, in which they shared their music in the natural setting of a farm, and appeared in a series of lunchtime concerts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. In 2014, Viva!Pipers collaborated with Premiere Performances of Hong Kong under the “Chamber Music In Schools” programme to give live performances at local and international schools in Hong Kong. They also regularly hold professional development workshops for music teachers.
