The SAR Philharmonic is the musical arm of SAR PHILHARMONIC CHARITABLE FOUNDATION, a Hong Kong Government registered Charitable Foundation. The orchestra performs several concerts a year and since the first concert in 1999 over $30 million have been raised for local charities.

Orchestra members are dedicated volunteers who give their services freely - thus maximizing the financial benefits for the recipient charity. The orchestra boasts over 100 members and presents ambitious programs for full symphony orchestra.
