Lee Kwok Ki Joseph graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and later pursued his performance studies at Northwestern University in the US. He was given life membership of Pi Kappa Lambda in acknowledgement of his excellent academic results and trombone performance and received a commendation of honour upon graduation of his master’s studies.

After returning to Hong Kong, Joseph has dedicated himself to the establishment of a number of school bands, orchestras and recorder bands. In addition, he has organised courses and taught at the Chinese University School of Continuous Education, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Education University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Art Centre.

Other than teaching, Joseph has also taken up jobs that contribute to the promotion of music education in the city. He is a popular speaker in music appreciation and has given numerous talks for the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Music Office, Hong Kong Arts Library, Hong Kong Museum of History and many local primary and secondary schools. Other jobs of Joseph’s include producing and conducting radio programmes on music appreciation for RTHK Radio 4 and editing classical CDs and writing listening guides for bestselling classical compilation titles, including “Why”, “Why Klavier” and “Passport to Music”.

In addition to giving lectures and lessons, Joseph also possesses an impressive repertoire in performance. He regularly holds solo trombone performances throughout Hong Kong and has been playing with local and international groups, including the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta. In the 1990s, he established the T-Bone Party, a trombone quartet, and later, the Joseph Lee Brass Ensemble, with which he gave performances in various venues in the city.

Since the Millennium, Joseph has dedicated himself to the performance of the recorder, and has been awarded the LRSM. In 2005, he established the recorder ensemble L’Art du Bois, hoping to contribute in bringing the instrument and its music to the public, especially the young generations, by giving concerts and recitals in schools and various venues in the territory.

For the past ten years, Joseph has sought every opportunity to enrich his knowledge in early music through attending early music festivals, masterclasses and courses every summer. As he explored more and more about the music from the Medieval to Renaissance Period, he felt the urge to introduce these underappreciated repertories to the audience of Hong Kong. In 2013, Joseph established the L’Artiste, hoping to present to the local music lovers the wonders of early western music and the early music instruments rarely seen in the local scene.

Having completed a master’s degree in Medieval and Renaissance Music, Fiona is currently pursuing a specialised master’s programme in Renaissance Music at the prestigious Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, studying the recorder and keyboards with Corina Marti.

During her undergraduate studies at the Chinese University, she was awarded the Dean’s List (2012-16), the Academic Creativity Award (2015) the Departmental Prize (CUHK, 2016), the Methodist WDSC Scholarship (2014/15).

In 2016, after having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (with first-class honours), Fiona has benefited from the Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund and the Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence, which sponsored her for her postgraduate studies at King’s College London and obtained a Master’s degree in Musicology (Distinction) in 2017. 

For Fiona, research and performance have always been equally important and her main activities. In 2015, she delivered papers on early 17th-century Italian music at the 3rd Biennial Meeting of the East Asian Regional Association of the International Musicological Society and in 2016, in the 17th Biennial International Conference in Canterbury, U.K., on Baroque Music.

In the field of performance, Fiona’s main instruments are the recorder and the organetto, but she is also an apt player on a variety of Medieval-Renaissance wind and keyboard instruments, including the pipe and tabor, double recorder, shawm, clavisimbalum and clavicytherium. As a soloist and also with the groups she directs/co-directs (L’Artiste, Ensemble .q.p.i.t., and La Fiamma), she has won runner-up positions in the Parsons Scholarship for Wind, Brass and Percussion Instruments for four times and has also been a finalist and semi-finalist in the International Young Artists Competition in York, England (2019) and the Internationaal Van Wassenaer Concours in Utrecht, Netherlands (2019) respectively. Apart from joining competitions, Fiona performs frequently in Switzerland, Germany, England, Italy, Canada, Japan and most regularly, in her homeland, Hong Kong, taking up the responsibility as the ambassador for promoting early music in the city, with Joseph Lee and other members of the L’Artiste.
