Athene Mok (Soprano)

 

Soprano Athene Mok received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree and Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance and Literature from the Eastman School of Music, after completing her Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.  Mok was a winner of many scholarships and awards, including the first prize at the Jessie Kneisel Lieder Competition, third prize at the Friends of Eastman Opera Competition, and the Concerto Competition at the Eastman School of Music.  She was also the semi-finalist of the 2017 Classical Singer Vocal Competition, a national competition held by the Classical Singer magazine in the United States.

 

Mok has performed in Hong Kong, Taipei, the United States, Toronto and Tel Aviv.  She made her professional debut in Taipei in 2019 as Ghost, the main character of the chamber opera Ghost Love by Chan Hing-yan.  She will be premiering Chan’s new chamber opera Kungfood in Cantonese in 2022.  Her other operatic appearances included Poppea and Valletto in L’incoronazione di Poppea, La Fée in Cendrillon, Morgana in Alcina, Sister Constance in Dialogues des Carmélites, and Despina in Così fan tutte.  Mok is equally adept in musical theatre, having performed the title role of the original musical Esther as well as Rizzo in Grease.

 

On the concert stage, Mok has performed Bach’s Magnificat with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Haydn’s The Creation and Bach’s Mass in B Minor with the Eastman Philharmonia and Eastman Rochester Chorus, Haydn’s Nicolaimesse with Bucknell University Choir and Camerata, and Fauré’s Requiem with The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus.

 

 

Cherry Tsang (Piano)

 

Pianist Cherry Tsang has given recitals and performed chamber music in cities across Asia, Europe and the United States.  She made her Carnegie Hall debut in New York in 2009.  Tsang has performed with many orchestras, including the Eastman Symphony Orchestra, the Academy Symphony Orchestra of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) and Hong Kong Ars Nova Orchestra, under the baton of Neil Varon, Alan Cumberland, Christoph Campestrini, among others.

 

As a chamber musician, Tsang has performed in the Mainland, Spain and Australia.  She regularly performs in the Hong Kong Sinfonietta’s chamber concert series and Three Garden Road’s classical concert series “Musica del Cuore”, and has appeared in the Wooster Music Festival and Sanibel Music Festival in the United States.  Some of the renowned musicians she has shared the concert stage with include trumpeter Giuliano Sommerhalder and Esteban Batallán Cons, clarinetist Florent Héau and Michel Arrignon, as well as violinist Piotr Milewski.  Her collaborations with trumpeter James Thompson led to the recording of arias from Bach’s cantatas, released under the label of the International Trumpet Guild in 2014.  She gave a solo recital in “Our Music Talents” series presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department in 2015.

 

Tsang received her Master’s degree and Doctorate in Piano Performance from the Eastman School of Music in the United States.  She was teaching assistant to Barry Snyder from 2008 to 2011.  She is currently a piano teacher at the Hong Kong Baptist University, and teaches chamber music and piano accompaniment at the HKAPA.
