About Family Day

Prior to the P is for Percussion! family concert, don't miss this perfect opportunity to experience a wide range of family-friendly activities, including this interactive percussion exhibition, foyer performances, and thumbiano and musical bottle workshops! Come meet local musicians from Toolbox Percussion and upcycling product designer Kevin Cheung to create your own music instrument, feel the pulse of percussion, and explore the infinite possibilities of percussion!

Making of Recycle Xylophone

The bottle Xylophone was created with used PET bottles by upcycle artist Kevin Cheung, together with the students from the Education University of Hong Kong, Over the course of a 4-day workshop, the creators explored the community to find recyclable materials, learned some basic craftsmanship, and created a one-octave bottle xylophone. The pitch of the bottle is controlled by the pressure of air injected. In the exhibition "Interactive Percussion" session, you can try it out and compare its sounds with those of the wooden xylophone: which do you prefer?
