Founder and Executive Director – Ignatius HO
Ignatius possesses a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and practices as a Certified Public Accountant for many years. In 2003, out of his passion in education, he took off his public accountant hat and founded two charities, the PMA Music Foundation and the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra of HK, in view to serving the community via music.
Our world is imperfect in many ways; yet, music could always be a blessing and support to bring hope to people from all walks of life. As a universal language, not only does the limitless of music lead us to a new perspective towards life, but also heal our soul and nurture an admirable heart. Via music, one could be healed, be served, be inspired and be amused.
Ignatius is dedicated to sowing seeds of music in the younger generation. Through music, we nurture thankful and serving hearts. Through music, we make a difference by doing small things with passion. Through music, we are inspired to be a miracle to others.
Founded the orchestra with “Music Excellence with a Soul” as motto, Ignatius is convinced to use music as a platform to inspire and to educate the young generation. Since the orchestra establishment, music connects the orchestra with various admirable souls and inspiring figures, including limbless life warrior Nick Vujicic, 4-fingered pianist Lee Hee-Ah (Korea), one-handed violinist Adrian Anantawan (Canada), local blind singer Pinky Li and visually impaired pianist Li Hin.
Ignatius is also the chief editor of his 4 children storybooks, Give me a Hug, Dream Big, Believe, Belong, Become, and Make A Difference. In 2013, he also published a music album, Dear Lord, for Nick Vujicic.
