Meet Ho-Yin Kwok

Ho Yin Kwok, conductorDescribed by Classical Voice of North Carolina (CVNC) as an “impressive conductor…outstanding in his attention to detail and his command of the big picture”, Ho-Yin Kwok was recently appointed Artistic Director and Conductor of the Mississippi Valley Orchestra. He was twice-named Conducting Fellow of Eastern Music Festival in North Carolina, where he conducted the faculty ensemble, Eastern Festival Orchestra, and Guilford Symphony Orchestra. Ho-Yin has previously served as assistant conductor of Collegium Musicum Hong Kong and assisted its debut in Carnegie Hall of New York City. He also conducted tours with the Hong Kong Baptist University Symphony in Southern China and concerts in Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Other previous conducting positions include conductors of Sacred Heart Canossian College Orchestra and St. Stephen’s College Orchestra, with which he made his debut in Großer Musikvereinssaal, Vienna and won 1 st Prize in the Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival 2014.

He also studied with Gerard Schwarz, Grant Cooper, José -Luis Novo and Eric Garcia. His principal conducting teachers are Mark Russell Smith and William LaRue Jones.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Reborn for a whole new generation of fans, Star Wars is back again with John Williams in the composer’s chair once more! From Rey’s whimsical Theme to the sinister leitmotif for Kylo Ren, witness the Wagnerian power of this fully sanctioned and official Signature Edition Suite!

One of Jerry Goldsmith’s most terrifying and avant-garde scores, Alien features a glimmer of lyrical beauty hidden beneath the surface. The main theme in our suite is also used in the latest Alien movie, Isolation, bringing us full circle. You may want to steel yourself for this one. I can’t lie to you about your chances of making it through this part of the program unscathed, but…you have my sympathies.

E.T. Adventures on the Earth
It’s hard to imagine a moment in film history that owes more to the film score than the final ten minutes of E.T. That is precisely what we will play for you: music from the full ten minutes of the end of the film. While the music itself owes a lot to Howard Hanson’s 2nd symphony, it is nonetheless one of the most emotionally powerful film cues of all time.

Star Trek 50th Anniversary Suite
Containing cues that are unavailable for rent anywhere, this brand-new suite features music from Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Written for four extra brass, organ and over 25 percussion instruments, witness how Jerry Goldsmith boldly envisioned the sound of optimism and strange new worlds.
