I am Clara Tsang and I have been on the road of music with my cello for over two decades.  Along the way, I encountered numerous ups and downs and even struggled during a dark period when I abandoned my cello and lived routinely.  But I was brought back to my conscious with the pain of broken bones and picked up once again the freedom of laying my fingers on cello strings.  Since then, I have found my way in music and decided to perform on stage where I could tell stories of rendezvous, miracles, the moment, and my dearests.   I believe the power of music can also resonate with you all as it has woken me up to devote my life to perform music

What I want to do…1st cello music album“Just Meet You”

I will be releasing my first cello music album “Just Meet You” at the end of 2018.  The Album will contain different stories of encountering and I hope to deliver them to your heart through music.
 

I have heard that the chance of two people meeting with each other is 1 in 10 millions but for them to become friends is 1 in 200 millions and even to fall in love is as low as 1 in 1.5 billion.   It may seem that some encounters are destined to halt at friendship and fade away.  Indeed, this “destined bond” is difficult to describe, to predict and even to escape from it; however, just at the right moment, two persons will meet, not a moment too early or too late.  Is it merely by coincident or fate that I meet you here?

My rendezvous with cello, from strangers to lovers, is a “coincident” mingled with all sorts of destined bonds.  Now I am my cello and it is me, and this is the story I want to tell you – without a word but only with musical notes on scores.  Will you care to listen?
