HKBU Alumnus Albert Au Shui-keung (Communication)
The BUddy Post has interviewed alumnus Albert Au Shui-keung (Communication) who will share with us his passion for golden oldies and for reconnecting HKBU’s alumni.

Reporter: Can you share with us why you love folk songs and golden oldies so much?

Albert: I started my career as a disc jockey and a singer at a young age and have all the way been listening to and singing songs with wonderful melodies. I think I have listened to more than 10,000 songs and some of them are the golden treasures of life. They bring us fond and special memories and that’s why I enjoy listening and singing them. I believe that I have the responsibility to keep these songs going, passing them on from generation to generation.

Reporter: I know that you will be hosting 3 concerts in May 2015. Can you tell us something about it?

Albert: I will turn 60 in 2015 and I would like to celebrate this milestone with a concert called “Albert Au and Friends in Concert” from 28 – 30 May at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. I will choose 60 golden oldies to share with the audience and invite many distinguished artistes as my guests including a world-class one, whose name I can only disclose later.

Reporter: I know that the concert on 30 May 2015 will be named as “HKBU Alumni Night”. How did you come up with this wonderful idea?

Albert: I graduated from School of Communication at HKBU and therefore I have a “life-time connection” with HKBU. Upon graduation, I have been busy developing my career and didn’t really have time to participate in the University’s activities. In recent years, I have had more opportunities to reconnect with HKBU by engaging myself in different activities. Lately, I joined a dinner hosted by the University and talked about my concert with alumnus William Leung, Chairman of Alumni Committee of HKBU Foundation. We both think that it would be extraordinary if we could unite our alumni through music, particularly when the University will celebrate its 60th Anniversary in 2016. With the support of the Alumni Committee of HKBU Foundation, I decided to name the concert on 30 May 2015 as “HKBU Alumni Night”. I am sure the auditorium will be infused with a special sense of nostalgia when HKBU friends of various decades and disciplines sitting in groups, listening to and singing oldies together.

Reporter: How can our alumni make reservation for the concert?

Albert: As the concert on 30 May 2015 is dedicated to HKBU alumni, I am very happy to reserve the best seats with a 10% discount for them. I really hope that they can join me at this memorable event and share the great melodies like Donna Donna and Blowing in the wind, to name but a few. There will also be a special session prior to the opening of the concert that night. To reserve the tickets, alumni can click onto www.albertau.com.hk or fill in the order form and return by mail to the address as indicated. For enquiries, they can to contact my colleague Candy at 2744 5191.
