Performing in Hong Kong this weekend, the critically acclaimed Shipley Arts Festival founded by renowned UK violinist Andrew Bernardi proves that classical music is never boring.
Held at the Big Steps in the recently opened K11 MUSEA, the world’s first cultural-retail destination, the Shipley Arts Festival is performing on 6 October (Saturday) from 3:00pm–5:45 pm.
The festival’s critical acclaim in the UK lies in the vision of its founder and artistic director Bernardi. The violinist has played on TV and film soundtracks including cameo appearances in Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation, Nanny McPhee, The Talented Mr Ripley and Pride and Prejudice. He has also performed at concerts in the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, and the Barbican Centre in London, as well as the Lucerne Concert Hall in Switzerland.
Bernardi aspires towards “creating pathways and opportunities for young musicians.” One of the most diverse and inclusive music festivals in UK, the programme this Sunday includes collaborations between maestros and young talents showcasing classical music pieces such as Vivaldi, Brahms and Mozart. This will be followed by a second session showcasing emerging classical musicians with all the brimming possibilities of future maestros.
With all the makings of a relaxing and entertaining Sunday evening, the Shipley Arts Festival is a classical music programme not worth missing.
