Musicus Fest
"The career of a professional musician has always encompassed a multitude of roles, going from the concert hall into the teaching studio, and venturing out into the wider community; the musician's work can take place in intimate historic sites as well as vast modern venues. In this spirit, Musicus Fest incorporates a holistic approach to music making and the musicians themselves."
Trey Lee, Artistic Director

Musical Encounters between Hong Kong and the World


Musicus Fest is a meeting point for artists from across the world. It helps them to inspire and interact with future generations. Great artists are not only born with great talent, they are also influenced by their peers and those who have come before them, through traditions and knowledge passed down from previous generations. The Musicus Fest will give Hong Kong artists and students what their counterparts elsewhere have long enjoyed: a chance to elevate themselves to a higher level of artistic excellence through meaningful interaction with distinguished artists from different parts of the world.

Continuing the mission of cross-cultural collaboration, Musicus Fest 2019 presents the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, an ensemble that is the quintessence of German cultivation and lucidity, in an exemplary program of glamour and virtuosity at the Festival Opening. In addition to orchestral classics by Haydn and Liszt, ECHO KLASSIK winner Dejan Lazić will make his Musicus Fest debut in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.14. Artistic Director and world-renowned cellist Trey Lee will take center stage in Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme.

Chamber music has always play an important part in our annual Festival. Featuring renowned violist Vladimir Mendelssohn, pianist Colleen Lee, as well as other overseas and local musicians, our Jockey Club Musicus Heritage Alive concert will be staged at the history-laden site of the Asia Society Hong Kong Center, with a program to highlight the stories of renewal unique to this venue.

For the Children’s Concert, Marco Polo and his mischievous Italian servants return with a new and exciting chapter of his Carnival adventures! Integrating Chinese and Western music with improvised comedy skits, eye-catching spectacles and colorful masks, it promises a jolly good time for the whole family.

The Festival Finale celebrates established artists and burgeoning young talents in a program of perennial orchestral favorites. American violinist and first concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic, Noah Bendix-Balgley will be leading the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. He will also be sharing the spotlight with rising violin star Paloma So and Artistic Director Trey Lee in double concertos by J.S. Bach and Vivaldi respectively. The program also features youthful, exuberant symphonies by Schubert and Mendelssohn.

Join us and be part of this annual musical revelry!
