Hong Kong-raised cellist Clara Tsang made her international debut with American pianist Jean Schneider at Carnegie Hall in New York on March 18.

The cello recital, titled “Miraculous Life,” featured works by Sergei Rachmaninoff and Cesar Franck. The performance, which was supported by Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, New York (HKETONY), attracted an audience of more than 200.

Welcoming Ms. Tsang at the concert, Acting Director of HKETONY Paul Cheung said the office would continue to support performances in New York by Hong Kong musicians with a view to promoting closer cultural ties between Hong Kong and the United States.

Ms. Tsang is the President of the Hong Kong Cellist Society. She was granted a fellowship by the Asian Cultural Council (New York) to participate in exchanges with leading musicians in the United States from March 11-22.
