July 1, 2007 will mark the tenth anniversary of Hong Kong's establishment as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the return of sovereignty to China. SGI-Hong Kong members have been participating in celebratory events taking place in Hong Kong. The Cosmic Brass Band and Bauhinia Fife-and-Drum Corps marched in a grand parade together with other bands. The men's and young women's choirs collaborated with a local orchestra for a joint concert on April 22. As well as celebrating the tenth anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China, the concert aimed to foster appreciation for the arts and music.
