Internationally acclaimed composer and pianist Yasuhide Ito came to Hong Kong to judge the 2012 Winter band festival. He is well known for his 60 band pieces, including the famous Gloriosa and much-loved Festal Scenes. He had his first piece of musical composition when he was in the third grade in high school. Now, he is called upon to adjudicate in a major international musical event, and so he came into Sam’s for some Hong Kong style.
