The Inaugural Musicus Fest Concluded on a High Note with Resounding Success

Musicus Society's inaugural Musicus Fest recently gathered top artists from overseas and Hong Kong in a number of educational events and community concerts at Po Leung Kuk and Asia Society, leading to three major concerts at City Hall, including the gala event of the festival – the Breguet’s Celebration of Excellence concert featuring Finland’s leading orchestra, Tapiola Sinfonietta, with Musicus Fest Artistic Director, renowned cellist Trey Lee, and Finnish opera star mezzo soprano Virpi Räisänen, and a concluding concert performed by all festival artists and students from the festival’s education program.

In a heartwarming statement given by Artistic Director Trey Lee to a roomful of enthusiastic audience while introducing about sixty local and overseas festival artists and Tapiola Sinfonietta members onstage at the concluding concert, Lee stated: "The concept of Musicus Fest is not just about bringing world-class artists together to make great music…it is also about encouraging and giving opportunities to Hong Kong's abundant young musical talents that you saw onstage tonight. Together with your support, we will continue with our work and hopefully see you all again at Musicus Fest 2014!"

The festival was attended by many of Hong Kong's most illustrious figures, including the Honorary Mrs Carrie Lam, Chief Secretary of Administration from the Hong Kong SAR Government, Chairman of Musicus Society Mrs Janice Choi and President Ms Chui-Inn Lee, Chairman of UNICEF HK's Advocacy and Public Relations Committee Ms Leonie Ki, the Consuls General of Finland, Russia, Czech Republic, Korea and Malaysia, arts patrons Mrs Alice King, Mr Stephen King, Mr Ronald Kwok and Mrs Reggie Kwok, music luminary Dr Darwin Chen, award winning film director Mr Kenneth Bi and producer Ms Rosa Li, celebrities and socialites Mrs Cathy Lee, Ms Jane Chao and Mrs Myla Kaye.
