The Orchestra Academy Hong Kong ("TOA") is a co-project of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra ("HK Phil") and The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts ("HKAPA"), supported by the Swire Trust’s TrustTomorrow initiative. TOA, which aims to provide professional training for HKAPA music graduates, and facilitate their career development in the orchestral field, recently announced that candidates have been selected for its Fellowship Programme and Young Pro Platform.

In the Fellowship Programme, the six Fellows will undergo training with the HK Phil in its 2021/22 season, performing a wide-ranging symphonic repertoire. Each Fellow will be paired with a HK Phil musician as mentor, so they can gain insights into the professional life of members of an orchestra. The Young Pro Platform offers a versatile season-long programme of full ensemble concerts with Philharmonia APA and a series of chamber concerts. Students will be required to take an active role in curating specially designed concert programmes, and during their audition, the 16 players were asked to perform works from both the classical and non-classical/contemporary repertoire. TOA Fellows and players will also have the opportunity to "pay it forward" through skilled volunteering, allowing them to spend time teaching young people, as well as playing music to underprivileged groups. TrustTomorrow has pledged funding of approximately HK$9 million over three years to support TOA.
