Following a performance with his quartet at the Cosmopolis Festival (February 16, 7:30 PM, Shaw Auditorium), jazz pianist Chris Carpio will lead preselected student musicians in techniques of jazz improvisation.
The event is free and open to the public.
Surrounded by music and rhythm since birth, Chris Carpio’s journey as a musician has been unique. From being a passionate sportsman who represented Hong Kong Rugby U20s, to performing in and directing many prestigious events and projects around the globe, his life experiences have had a great influence on his musical creativity.
Whether working as a session musician, composer, arranger, or musical director, Chris strives for perfection, as was noted by Tatler Hong Kong in their inaugural Generation T List. In 2022, Chris was showcased in two concerts, “Carpio Brothers: Back to the Dickens,” featuring the Tony Carpio Big Band, and “The Little Giant: Michel Petrucciani Tribute” in collaboration with French May Hong Kong.
Alongside his performances, Chris’s passion for music has led him to educating and inspiring others.
