The Hong Kong Festival Wind Orchestra will make its second appearance in Korea, participating in the 9th Cheju Summer Band Festival this in August. The Festival, under the theme of "Island, the Resonance of Wind!" will feature an ensemble festival, an international brass competition and the Conference of Asia & Pacific Band Directors' Association (APBDA).
