About Cellist Clara Tsang

Clara Tsang graduated from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA), majoring in Music (Cello Performance). She had studied under different cellists, including Richard Bamping and Professor Ray Wang, and attended master classes held by late Timothy Landauer, Martin Menking, Gerhard lberer and Mario Brunello, and had private lessons with Natalie Gutman, Bion Tsang, Thomas Grossenbacher and Antonio Pleeth.

Clara’s passion and vision in bringing music to as many people as possible has led to the establishment of Cello Factory and Hong Kong Cellist Society (HKCS) in 2004. Cello Factory, where she serves as the School Principal, is a music school that offers music education for string and other instruments and for ensemble musicianship. On the other hand, HKCS provides a platform to all musicians for music exchange and sharing and opportunities for performance; to nurture a healthy appetite for classical music; and to encourage interaction between musicians and the public.

Under the support of Forever Red Project by HKCS, she had her first Cello Recital in 2012 and started her journey of musical reflection and discovery in her annual concerts in collaboration with different media and artists in Hong Hong.  In view of her success in the local music scene, she was encouraged to explore with her music and was also invited to perform abroad. She made her first international debut in Carnegie Hall, New York in March 2014 with the Fellowship granted by the Asian Cultural Council (New York) and performed in the Faculty House at Columbia University. In 2015, she held two concerts with new concepts – a “Serendipity” encounter with modern dance and “The moment” of ground-breaking performance on music and the theory and philosophy of martial art, Wing Chun – which brought veteran dancer and martial art master to the stage to perform with the cellist. Later, she was welcomed by Shen Shu Yi Foundation to play in Shanghai and brought her concert “My Dearest” for a Taiwan Tour in 2017 by the invitation of Nicola’s Creative Agent. 2019 will mark a new milestone for Clara as she will launch a cello CD with financial support raised via crowdfunding under the theme of “Just Meet You” in hope to bring her music and passions to more audience.
