OUR HISTORY

Premiere Performances of Hong Kong will celebrate a significant milestone in 2017 – its 10th anniversary as a presenter of the world’s best performers of classical music and chamber music in Hong Kong.

Since its first Recital Series in 2007, Premiere Performances has presented almost 50 artists in solo recitals. Some of the classical music world’s biggest names have been featured under the Premiere Performances banner, many of them making their Hong Kong debut.

In 2009, Premiere Performances launched its first Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival. The annual event features concerts by world-class chamber artists, plus dozens of free workshops, lectures, master classes and concerts around the city. The festival brings Hong Kong audiences the richness of chamber music and its endless variety of instrumental combinations.

In 2012, Premiere Performances launched its extraordinary Chamber Music In Schools programme, bringing live performances, workshops and teacher training to schools across Hong Kong. Thanks to this programme, Hong Kong school children have significantly greater access to classical music. With its reach of some 40 events and 15,000 students annually, it is one of the principal live-music experiences in Hong Kong schools today.

Premiere Performances was founded as a registered charity in March 2007 by Andrea Fessler. Having lived in Hong Kong since 2004, Ms. Fessler perceived a strong demand for classical music concerts but there were few choices of solo recitals, and even less of chamber music. Ms. Fessler founded Premiere Performances to fill that gap. Hong Kong has since seen exponential growth in the number of concerts, presenters, students and audience members of recitals and chamber music.

Premiere Performances has secured important government funding while concurrently raising millions of dollars in corporate and donor support which, combined, have enabled its continuity and growth. Premiere Performances has firmly taken its place not only as one of Hong Kong’s leading arts presenters, but also as a versatile, ever-evolving, major contributor to the vibrancy of Hong Kong’s cultural community.
