Forever Red Project

Red is energizing.  It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action.

It is a pioneering spirit and leadership quality.  It signifies a passion that music evokes in every one of us, packed with emotions ranging from passionate, intense love, to anger and violence.

The Forever Red Project headed by our resident cellist Clara Tsang draws together different musicians in collaboration where the only goal is to spark a catalytic reaction of music explosion.  Established and emerging artists work together, and every three months, we bring to stage a new and exciting fusion of different styles of music, a vivid and colourful collaboration amongst musicians and artists.
