January 19th - 25th, 2017
The 8th Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival 2017 will take place from January 19th -25th, 2017 and will feature 6 ticketed concerts and over 20 free outreach and education activities. Under the auspices of Artistic Director Cho-Liang Lin, the Festival showcases world class musicians performing diverse repertoire in the city’s major concert halls and its smaller boutique venues, alongside a range of education and outreach programmes. This is truly the art form at the highest international standards.
Since its launch in 2009, the Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival has quickly become a cultural landmark. Through dynamic, accessible performances of world class quality and extensive outreach and education activities, the Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival challenges audience’s perception of what chamber music is -- by making innovative programming choices beyond the standard repertoire, by including non-traditional instruments (e.g. harp, percussion, voice), by holding concerts in non-traditional venues (e.g. museums) and by bringing in performers of the highest international quality together with local musicians. Past guests have included the Emerson Quartet, Lynn Harrell, Ning Feng, Gary Hoffman, Wu Han and the Jerusalem Quartet.
