[2008-05-29] Joyce Koi & Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra 3rd time collaboration to perfom in Hong Kong Cultural Center from 25/6/2008 - 29/6/2008. This is their 3rd time collaborating. Joyce invited her good friend, Steven Ma, to be her special guest for the concert. They will sing a Cantonese opera duet, 鳳閣恩仇未了. Yesterday, they rehearsed their duet for the first time.
The week prior, Steven has had a stomach flu. He joked that during the rehearsal he felt like throwing up. Joyce quipped, "Did I make you feel like throwing up?" Still a month away from opening night, Joyce revealed that she, herself, had already started rehearsing, but that, Steven, because of his illness, just got started yesterday. This wasn't their first collaboration; they collaborated last year for stage performances held in Canada. At that time, they sang a Cantonese Opera duet. Accompanied by the Chinese orchestra, their duet went without a hitch during the actual performance.

而盖鸣晖表示曾试过演出前出错，幸好中乐团指挥家阎惠昌帮助她重新再来音乐，她称演出失声是最辛苦的事，所以要好好保重身体。此外，盖鸣晖表示6月5日八和会馆将于新光戏院为四川灾民义演一场。有媒体问她私下有捐款吗？她称5月16日义演了一场筹得20多万，而她私人则捐了4万元。source: link 2008 may 29
