Gabriel Leung

Principal Conductor

Prof. Gabriel Leung

As a boy soprano, pianist, percussionist and conductor, Gabriel Leung’s concert appearances have taken him to most of the major music centres in Asia, Australasia, Europe and North America, as well as locally and on the mainland. As an educator, his pedagogical philosophy of a renaissance education for all young people, with music as a medium to develop intellectual, social and emotional qualities have won praises from students and parents alike.

During the 1990s, Leung served as Chief Conductor and Director of Yip’s Children’s Choir (Canada). He was founding conductor of the Canadian Music Competitions Orchestra and a frequent guest conductor of the Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra. Leung had been elected Co-President and Artistic Director of Canadian Music Competitions (Toronto) and to the Board of Directors of the Ontario Choral Federation.

Since his return to Hong Kong in 1999, Leung has been in constant demand as a choral clinician and orchestral conductor. Regular performance partners have included the Hong Kong Children’s Symphony Orchestra and Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra. He has also made recent guest appearances with the Hong Kong Oratorio Society and Good Hope Singers. He previously served on the Board of Governors of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and is a current board member of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Asian Youth Orchestra and the Hong Kong Arts Festival.

Leung is Dean of Medicine at the University of Hong Kong.
