Musicus Fest 2020 reunites Hong Kong stars from across the globe
For music enthusiasts, the upcoming Musicus Society’s Musicus Fest is a triumph over adversity and a rare showcase for the exceptional talent of established and budding Hong Kong artists - something that is closely related to the origin of Musicus Society. A decade ago, the organisation started out as an idea from Trey Lee, the celebrated cellist and Artistic Director of Musicus Society, that has blossomed into a platform for promoting cross-cultural collaborations through music and nurturing young talented artists originally from the city. “Hong Kong has long invited internationally celebrated artists, but young Hong Kong artists enjoy few opportunities to perform on stage with them, which is vital for the latter’s development,” says Lee, recounting how he benefited from similar platforms during his musical studies in the United States and Europe. The Society has since emulated these established platforms overseas.
