Musicus Society is a registered charity which aims to promote music and its education through cross-cultural collaboration between local and overseas artists. The 2016 iteration of the organisation's annual Musicus Fest, a five-day classical music extravaganza that mixes the best of our local talent with a select handful of international virtuosi, returns on November 23-27. Throughout the five days, Hong Kong crowds wil be treated to a wide array of repetoire inspired by gardens, Babar the Elephant and beer, as well as hearing the talents of musicians such as Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto, pianist Paavali Jumppanen and Swiss cellist Rocco Filippini, all backed by the Finnish Tapiola Sinfonietta (pictured). With five days of music, what's there exactly to check out though? We have the definitive guide right here...
