Artists-in-Residence, MA in Music: LENK Quartet (AY2022/23)
29 JUN 22

We are excited to announce that LENK Quartet will be Artists-in-Residence for our MA in Music Programme in AY2022/23. 

There will be three concerts in the academic year with the mission to build close ties and foster exchanges between MA’s artists-in-residence, CUHK staff and students, and indeed all other friends in the audience. 

LENK quartet is a violin-cello-clarinet-piano quartet composed of active Hong Kong-born, Hong Kong-raised and Hong Kong-based classical musicians formed in 2021. Under the concert invitation from HKU MUSE, the group is initiated by veteran pianist Nancy Loo and joined forces by young violinist Kitty Cheung, cellist Eric Yip and clarinettist Linus Fung.

The name LENK is the combination of first letters of the English names Linus, Eric, Nancy and Kitty. The quartet is committed to giving top quality live performances to the audience with its engaging and multicoloured playing.

Ethnomusicology PhD Awarded Zhilan Scholarship for the Study of Chinese Culture 2021-22
24 MAY 22

Congratulations to Matthew Haywood, PhD student of the Department of Music on receiving the Zhilan Scholarship for the Study of Chinese Culture 2021-22!

Matthew’s research concerns the cultural sustainability of Cantonese opera in Hong Kong. To this end, his project investigates the ways in which the Cantonese opera industry has sought to retain its regular audience whilst attracting the attention of local youth and foreign interest. By examining aesthetic developments in conventional and experimental performances, the shifting landscape of identity construction and affective experiences associated with Cantonese opera, and reforms to the Cantonese opera industry spearheaded by the recognition of Cantonese opera as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2009, Matthew’s research illuminates the dynamics of diversification that have contributed to the resilience of the ‘grand theatre’ in contemporary Hong Kong society.

“I would like to thank the Zhilan Scholarship for the Study of Chinese Culture for providing this opportunity. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many difficulties for academic research that prioritises fieldwork, and so I am truly grateful to receive their very generous support at this time. Also, I would like to thank the Department of Music for nominating me and the Cantonese opera performers and producers I have worked with for warmly receiving me and engaging with my research.” Matthew said.

The Zhilan Scholarship for the Study of Chinese Culture awards two undergraduates and two postgraduate research students each year with an excellent track record and whose research has considerable potential to contribute to our knowledge of Chinese culture. This year, Mr. Haywood was selected by the Arts Faculty Scholarship Committee out of a pool of 11 nominations received from various Graduate Divisions.
