Festivals

Haw Par Music is always on the go in sharing the joy of music with the public. Several themed festivals are organised each year to engage all walks of life with music and related activities, and to offer special educational opportunities to children and students. The programmes range from music appreciation, heritage and craftsmanship workshops, cultural exchange, wellness activities to intensive training courses.

 

Haw Par Chamber Fest

The Haw Par Chamber Fest is a one-of-a-kind chamber music event in Hong Kong each summer and winter, comprising an intensive course for serious students culminating in a series of public concerts at the historical and revitalized former Haw Par Mansion.

What is Chamber Music?

Chamber music is a delicate and intimate musical form which emphasizes collaboration and rapport. It is also a great opportunity to communicate with each other, share musical ideas and build friendships. Hence chamber music is also commonly known as “the music of friends”.

Taught by renowned masters from Hong Kong alongside guest professors from the Vancouver Academy of Music, the chamber music course aims at elevating students’ standards of chamber music making within a short period through intensive/comprehensive training, including ensemble coaching, chamber orchestra rehearsals, technique classes and chamber music pedagogy.

Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with distinguished and internationally renowned musicians and attend their masterclasses. Echoing our holistic approach to music education, this unique course includes workshops tackling such topics as body movement and mindfulness.

Eligibility

Age: 10-18
Instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass or Piano
