When You Believe

Hong Kong Cultural Centre
True Colors Symphony held its very first concert on January 12th, 2020 at Hong Kong Cultural Centre. With the aim of advocating #BeTrue #BeColors, we integrate musicians from all walks of life to serve as one, promoting mutual acceptance and harmony in our society.
Music knows no boundaries – our musicians have harnessed their talents and came together on this unique platform for the greater good. As the lyrics of our theme song said, “There can be miracles when you believe.” it is When You Believe, change will occur, and everything is possible. Proceeds from the concerts benefited music training programs and scholarships for local students with financial or special needs.
