Dear Alumni,

The “Symphony of Lingnanians” successfully held on 2nd October marked the Closing Ceremony of the 50th Anniversary of the Re-establishment of Lingnan University in Hong Kong. Over a thousand attendees including guests, alumni, students, staff and friends of the university joined the spectacular event giving a perfect conclusion to the golden jubilee celebration.

We were privileged to have Ms Michelle Li Mei-Sheung, JP, Director of Leisure and Cultural Services of the HKSAR Government as our Guest of Honour officiated the Closing Ceremony with Mr Rex Auyeung Pak-Kuen, Chairman of the Council, Dr David Chan Pun, Hon LLD, Chairman of Court, Professor Leonard K Cheng, President of Lingnan University, Dr Lee Shiu and Dr Jennie Lee Mui Yee-Ching, Co-chair of Lingnan University 50th Anniversary Honorary Fundraising Campaign Committee, Mr Patrick Wong Chi-Kwong, Chairman of Lingnan Education Organization Limited, Mr Alfred Lee Sheung-Fat, Vice-Chairman of Lingnan University Alumni Association (HK) Limited. 

The closing ceremony was presented with numerous cultural and musical performances that reveled the audience through the night.  There was a choral performance by Lingnan University Christian Choir, dragon and lion dance performance by Lingnan University Lion Dance and Martial Art Team and the Sports Team. Dance performances by the Dancing Team of Lingnan University Alumni Association (Hong Kong) Primary School, Harmonica Orchestra performance by Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong Harmonica Orchestra, Cantonese Naamyam Singing and a unique Instrumental Music performance by friends and disciple of the late Lingnan University Honorary Doctor NG Wing-Mui that drew in rounds of applause. Lingnan University Choir, LUCAS, Alumni, Students of Lingnan University and Mr Andrea Marcelli, Musician-in-residence of the University also presented the Sound of Music @ Lingnan with a series of beautiful popular songs. The finale, a Choral Performance by Mr Woo Kai-sau (Woo Fung), Lingnan University Honorary Fellow was certainly the night’s highlight. Professor Leonard K Cheng, President of Lingnan University thanked all Lingnan’s stakeholders and friends who participated in the series of celebratory events in the past year.  He offered his sincere gratitude to Dr. Lee Shiu and Dr. Jennie Lee Mui Yee-Ching, Co-Chairs of the 50th Anniversary Honorary Fundraising Campaign Committee for their dedication in making the year-long celebration a great success.

As the Chairman of the Organising Committee of the 50th Anniversary of the Re-establishment of Lingnan University in Hong Kong, it has been my great honour to work with the Lingnan Community in executing momentous events this year to mark this important milestone. Every event had its own meaning and purpose, and were all equal in importance. My deepest gratitude goes to all members of the Organising Committee including the Chairman of the Lingnan Education Organisation, the Lingnan University Alumni Association (Hong Kong), representatives of Council and Court members, and all the university’s faculties, academic departments and administrative units for their wholehearted support and unfailing devotion in marking another milestone in Lingnan’s history.  I thank all fellow Lingnanians for their boundless support and love for the university that made our celebrations even more significant.

We shall continue to build upon the University’s achievements and success over the last fifty years and move into the next fifty with great confidence. I look forward to working with you in making Lingnan University a leading-edge liberal arts university with excellence in research and teaching in Asia, of Asia, and for Asia.

Have a wonderful year ahead!
