The Musicus Society’s Ensemble Training program is now open for applications. Full-time students who are residents of Hong Kong are welcome to submit their applications.

The Ensemble Training program has been an important component of Musicus Inspires!, an educational program that offers Hong Kong students a one-of-a-kind musical experience where they learn from world-class orchestral musicians and perform side-by-side with these mentors. This year, qualified students will receive intensive coaching from the Society’s Artistic Director Trey Lee, Musicus Fest musicians and the celebrated Trondheim Soloists, as well as performing in the Finale Concert of Musicus Fest. A few admitted students will be selected by the Trondheim Soloists to take part in the training and performance in Norway in February 2019.

The Ensemble Training program has benefitted over 100 students since 2013. This summer, alumni of the program were invited by the Musicus Society to take part in Finland’s Kuhmo Music Courses, one of the oldest and most prominent international summer music programs in Europe. Participant Lam Tsz-him (cello) thanked the Musicus Society for the wonderful opportunity. ”Not only was I able to study with an outstanding cellist, I also performed with a world-renowned pianist in a chamber workshop. It was just incredible!”

Musicus Society is financially supported by the Springboard Grant under the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region. Its Ensemble Training is supported by the Tung Foundation and the BOCHK Charitable Foundation.
