85th Anniversary Theme Song – a joint effort of PolyU members
One of the signature moments of the 85th Anniversary was the making of the theme song to reflect PolyU’s commitment across the generations to become a leading university with impactful contributions.
85th Anniversary Theme Song
Premiering at the Launch Ceremony, the theme song was the result of the joint efforts of PolyU members, under the leadership of Music Director Mr Leung Kin-fung, Artistic Director and Conductor of the PolyU Orchestra, and First Associate Concertmaster of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. The specially written theme song was composed by PolyU alumni Steph Lau and Eagle Chan, while the music arrangement was made by Ng Cheuk-yin and Lee Che-yi. The exquisite lyrics of the theme song were adopted from the contributions of alumnus Paul Lee and PhD student Chen Zhuoan, and refined by PolyU Council Chairman Dr Lam Tai-fai, President Professor Jin-Guang Teng, and Professor Chan Shui-duen, Chairman of Culture Promotion Committee and Research Professor of the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies.
