HONG KONG CAMERATA STRINGS

An ensemble for talented young string players

HKCS was created as a small ensemble of young people playing together to develop listening skills, musical styles and rhythmic awareness. It encourages communication and is rapidly creating a new musical community focusing on the great string chamber orchestra repertoire ranging from baroque music to the present time.

About Us

 

Hong Kong Camerata Strings was formed in 2016 as a string chamber ensemble for talented young musicians. The accomplished members have been selected from many different Hong Kong schools, showing the depth of flair and musical ability to be found in young people in Hong Kong. 

 

HK Camerata Strings was soon noticed as having exceptional qualities and invited by illustrious pianist and broadcaster Nancy Loo to appear on Children’s Corner for RTHK Radio 4, broadcast in June 2016 performing works by Purcell, Handel Mozart and Vivaldi.

 

HK Camerata Strings gave its debut public HK performance at the Hong Kong Space Museum in 2017. The ensemble has also appeared on television, in an arts programme for TVB and was invited to perform with multi-award-winning violinist Rachel Barton-Pine in June 2017.

In 2019, HK Camerata Strings performed with renowned pianist Mary Wu at All Saints Cathedral in Kowloon playing Mozart Piano Concerto in D K451.

Upcoming performances include a collaboration with acclaimed Dutch cellist Quirine Viersen performing Haydn in the Hong Kong Generation Next Arts (HKGNA) Festival on 19th November 2019 at JC Cube, Tai Kwun.

Regular masterclasses are held for the musicians, including those with the distinguished baroque violinist Pavlo Beznosiuk, Australian Chamber Orchestra violinist Aiko Goto and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra principal cellist Richard Bamping. They have also received coaching from James Cuddeford, concertmaster of Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

Our Artistic Director, Jeremy Williams, has performed in and with several of the world's leading orchestras and chamber ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Nash Ensemble and Australian String Quartet. He brings considerable experience to the young players of HK Camerata Strings, and enjoys helping them to develop their musical personalities from strength to strength.

Jeremy is currently Music Director for the Yew Chung Education Foundation.

One of the most important elements in teaching, conducting, and performing, all three, is listening.
