Hong Kong Saxophone Ensemble (HKSE) is a non-profitable music organization established in June 2011. Its members are professional saxophonists who obtained qualifications from music academies in Hong Kong, Europe, and the United States of America. They strive to promote new music through commissioning and recruiting new works from local and international composers. HKSE made their debut concert in 2012 at Shatin Town Hall, presented by Hong Kong International Saxophone Society. The concert received much compliments with all tickets being sold out. HKSE has also appeared in RTHK programme “The Works” and TVB programme “Cultural Plaza”. Furthermore, HKSE was invited to hold the lecture recital at HKAPA and HKIEd, "Good Music Every Friday" respectively. In 2012, HKSE received Arts Development Fund (Cultural Exchange Project) from Home Affairs Bureau to represent Hong Kong at the World Saxophone Congress 2012, held at St. Andrews University, Scotland, UK. In 2015, they received the ADF (CEP) from HAB again to participate in SaxOpen, the 17th World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, France. In 2013, HKSE held their annual concert in October followed by a concert named HKSE X Friends in November. In the following year, HKSE was invited as guest performer at Hong Kong International Band Fair 2014 Opening Concert, and performed with renowned saxophonist Lars Mlekusch.
