Young Artist Audition

Since the founding of Musicus Society in 2010, a considerable number of young artists have received the Society’s support in launching their career as professional musicians. Through the Society’s annual Musicus Fest, community concerts at local heritage sites and year-round outreach educational activities, these young artists are given opportunities to work and perform with established artists, and thereby enhancing their exposure and experience.

The objective of the Young Artist Audition is to enlist promising Hong Kong talents to participate in Musicus Society's concerts or outreach events.
