Local jazz band the Bridge, electronica composer Akitsugu Fukushima and the Macau Chinese Youth Orchestra are set to take the stage on 17 February at the Lai Chi Vun Shipyards.

Their free concert is the last of the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC)’s recent series of musical performances at the revamped historic shipyards. Other events in the series were held in December and January.

Founded in 1989, the Bridge is one of the city’s most active bands. Its members are frequent festival performers as well as resident musicians at a local jazz club.

The Japan-born, Macao-based composer Akitsugu Fukushima – known as ‘Aki’ – has built his career through collaborating with fellow musicians, artists and filmmakers. Fukushima’s classically-influenced music fuses with electronica and ambient sounds.

The Macao Youth Chinese Orchestra, meanwhile, is known for blending traditional Chinese music with electronic innovations. It has toured internationally.

Saturday’s concert is scheduled to kick off at 4 pm, at Lai Chi Vun Shipyards plots X11-X15 near Coloane Village. A special round-trip bus service will be operating on the day.
