The Works：Fine Art Asia 2020 & in the studio: pianist Melodie Wong
RSS 最後由 編輯
As the colder weather takes hold, many parts of the world are seeing record numbers of new coronavirus cases. Many places are imposing lockdowns. Hong Kong is braving a fourth wave of Covid-19, with many cases originating in dance studios. Stricter social-distancing rules have been imposed, with heavier fines payable for breaking them. Schools and entertainment venues are closed, and restaurants are having to close earlier. Since January this year, many cultural events such as art fairs and performances have been cancelled or postponed. Despite that, just before the current stringent regulations were introduced, one physical art fair, Fine Art Asia 2020 did manage to take place.
Pianist Melodie Wong trained in piano and vocal performance at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. She went on to New York University to pursue a master’s degree and taught in the city for three years. Last year, she decided to come back to Hong Kong and has recently released a new EP. Earlier this month, she came to our studio to tell us more.
