Henry Shek

Henry Shek studied both the violin and piano at an early age. After graduating from high school, Shek won a scholarship to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where he studied piano, theory, composition and conducting. Upon graduation with distinction in orchestral conducting, Shek was immediately engaged by conductor Yasushi Akutagawa to be his assistant at the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra and the New Symphony Orchestra in Japan. After winning conducting prizes at the San Remo Opera House (Italy), the Besançon (France) and the Herbert von Karajan (West Germany) competitions, Shek embarked on a career of conducting over 80 prestigious orchestras, opera houses and ballet companies across Europe, the United States and Asia.

Shek was appointed music director of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra from 1993 to 1997, and continued to be its principal conductor (Promotional Series) until 1999. During this period, Shek has made great strides to internationalise and promote Chinese symphonic music and made a series of recordings under the Marco Polo International label. His other recordings with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Shanghai Symphony and the Moscow Symphony have been international bestsellers.
