Ms. Tsang's concert is presented under the auspices of the Hong Kong-based Forever Red Project, which she founded in 2012 for the purpose of joining both emerging and established artists to create new combinations of music and art.
Clara Tsang graduated from the Hong Kong Academy, majoring in Music (Cello Performances). Her teachers included Richard Bamping, principal cellist with the Hong Kong Philarmonic; Professor Ray Wang; Timothy Landuer, principal cellist of Pacific Music Orchestra; Gerhard Iberer of the Vienna Philarmonic; Martin Menking of the Berlin Philarmonic; Orlando Cole from the Curtis Institute of Music; Bion Tsang of the U of Texas; Thomas Gossenbacher from Switzerland; Artem Konstantinov of the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong; and Vancouver Symphony Orchestra principal cellist Ariel Barnes.
While still a student, Clara participated in various projects with artists, dancers, and musicians. She has since performed with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, the New Philharmonic of Hong Kong, the Pan-Asia Symphony Orchestra, and the Macau Chamber Orchestra, as well as performing as principal cellist with the Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra.
In 2005 she joined the Pacific Music Festival, touring throughout Japan under conductors Jun Markl and Nello Santi, and 2012 she was invited by The Symphony Orchestra Academy of the Pacific in Canada, under the baton of Arthur Arnold. In 2008, Clara gave her first cello recital.
The versatile cellist has also appeared in music videos, live shows and CD recordings of pop singers and music groups of different genres. In addition to cello, Clara has appeared with companies playing the Guzheng, a traditional Chinese instrument.
Her passion to bring music to as many people as possible led her to establish the Hong Kong Cellist Society in 2004 and the Forever Red Project, which brings together emerging and established classical, jazz, and other artists to create new music.
Clara's recent Hong Kong recital was "Brahms Addiction," and all-Brahms program with pianist Tea Lomdaridze.
