Announcing COSMOPOLIS FESTIVAL 2022
Events: September 25–November 10, 2022
Join us at HKUST’s newly-opened Shaw Auditorium and other venues around the campus for the 2022 edition of the Cosmopolis Festival, highlighting Hong Kong as a major cultural hub, regularly visited by the most renowned performers from all over the world, with an equally broad range of local cultures and talent. Cosmopolis aims to introduce audiences to music from a cross section of cultural, linguistic, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. This year’s highlights include various new works, spanning multiple styles and including three world premieres; electroacoustic, multimedia, and VR-enhanced music; an evening of new and traditional Indonesian Gamelan; traditional Cantonese windpipe music; violinist Gian Paolo Peloso (Italy) and pianist Rachel Cheung (Hong Kong); and members of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Peter Biloen (Netherlands).
All events are free and graciously supported by the university. Non-HKUST members may join Friends of HKUST for free when registering to attend.
