Cosmopolis Festival

A small miracle, and something we’re all grateful for in this concert-starved time: our inaugural Cosmopolis Festival at HKUST is going forward! For the next five weeks, we’ll present around 15 events on the campus of the Hong Kong University of Science Technology, with concerts paired with talks, masterclasses, and workshops, ranging from South Indian Carnatic music with the breathtaking sister duo Ranjani and Gayatri, to a performance of Donizetti’s one-act opera Rita, to electroacoustic music from Finland with defunensemble. I’m looking forward to all of it, but in particular the Asian premiere of Taonta by the brilliant rising star, Rachel Cheung, on April 9.
