亞洲靑年管弦樂團創辦人龐信獲香港特區政府授勳

熱烈恭賀亞洲靑年管弦樂團(亞青)創辦人龐信獲香港特區政府頒授銀紫荊星章,以表揚其創辦及領導亞靑26年,並令樂團在國際舞台上享負盛名。

銀紫荊星章是香港授勳及嘉獎制度下第二最高級別勳章,頒授予長期擔任公共事務及志願工作的領導人。


龐信49年來一直致力為亞洲年青樂手提供學習及演出機會。龐氏在1967年開始在台北美國學校任教音樂,一年後於日本東京創立樂器課程,致今依然極受注目。1983至84年間,龐氏在上海音樂學院推動管弦樂,令學院於文化大革命過後得以蓬勃發展。自1987年起,龐氏植根香港,讓超過22,000名年青音樂家有機會成為亞洲青年管弦樂團一員,並提供巡迴演出機會。

龐氏於2000年已獲特區政府頒授銅紫荊星章。在龐氏領導下,亞青2010年榮獲日本「高松宮殿下記念世界文化賞」(年青藝術家) ,繼而在2015年榮獲「日經亞洲賞」(文化及藝術) 。


「紫荊星章」在1997年香港回歸中華人民共和國時設立,用以替代英國殖民時代所用的授勳制度(如大英帝國勳章) 。
