Cosmopolis Festival 2022 postponed

One of the nicest surprises last year was that, against all odds, our inaugural HKUST Cosmopolis Festival was able to take place, almost entirely live, and with a hugely diverse program. The 2022 edition was announced last month, featuring the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Peter Biloen (Netherlands), Gamelan Yugananda (Indonesia), jazz singer Talie Monin (Hong Kong/South Africa), and much more. Unfortunately, due to the deteriorating Covid-19 situation in Hong Kong, the season has been cancelled, tentatively to be rescheduled for the fall. Though it is, of course, very disappointing, we can only count our blessings and the many concerts we’ve been lucky to present through the pandemic so far.
