The TimeCrafters is a Hong Kong-based classical chamber music group. The group aims to nurture classical music appreciation and rejuvenate classical chamber music performances. The TimeCrafters focuses on giving themed chamber concerts, and often they collaborate with some of the most enthusiastic young musicians in town. Through light-hearted explanations and quality performances, members are proud to provide an intimate, informative and cosy chamber music experience to the audience.

Members of The TimeCrafters graduated from world renowned conservatories, including the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Royal Academy of Music and Royal Northern College of Music. Members have collaborated  with musicians such as Yoyo Ma, Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Mark Elder, Richard Bamping and Lio Kuokman; and serve as freelance players for the Hong Kong Philharmonic, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra and Hong Kong New Music Ensemble.

The TimeCrafters had already performed multiple 20 mini-concerts last year in which some were played in China. Among these mini-concerts, different areas of interests of music and art was covered – Bach’s Influence on other composers, Expressionist and Symbolism Music, Impressionist Composers’ thoughts, Neo-Classicism Music, Beethoven’s Life and Music, Schubert’s Music Circle, Music and Nature, Music and Poetry – their performances and ideas received great feedbacks from audiences. Now they have out-reaching concerts arranged from the Hong Kong Arts Festival and the Hong Kong West Kowloon Cultural District, as the TimeCrafters’ concerts successfully induce artistic interest to audiences and can benefit the society in nurturing classical music appreciation.

Alongside the regular themed concerts and guest performances, The TimeCrafters works with Chamber Music for Life Hong Kong in sharing classical music with elderlies and the underprivileged. Some members are devoted writers and arrangers.
