Hong Kong Science Museum Lecture Hall
The impossibly funny, creative and unconventional pianist Cheung Ping will bring to us a Stand-Up Comedy X Musical Recital, exploring "Why Study Music?"
Different from any conventional recitals, this performance comprises a unique blend of piano recital and stand-up comedy, interspersing original-composed music with sarcastic talks and personal stories.
