Osaka International Music Competition

Haley Wong is 11 years old and has had a love for music since her very early childhood.  She started learning the harp at 6 and is currently studying under Ms Lau Yee Yeung. Over the past three years, Yeung has coached Haley to build a good mix of repertoire with emphasis on nurturing musicality and creativity while securing technical foundation. 
Her passion for music is not limited to playing the harp. She has been taking vocal lessons from veteran soprano Ms Myra Chih since she was 7, and is currently focusing on singing opera arias and art songs in German, Italian, French and sometimes Latin. This undoubtedly serves as a significant element in developing her musicality and melodic sensitivity.
Haley recently won the Grand Prix title at the 18th Osaka International Music Competition (Hong Kong regional round) in July 2017, followed by a 1st runner-up prize in the Senior Harp Division (Above-15/Open) in the Grand Final in Japan. Prior to that she was the Champion of the same competition in the Junior Harp Division (Under-15) in 2016. Earlier this year she was shortlisted as one of the 33 global contestants to participate in the Dutch Harp Festival World Harp Competition 2018 Quarterfinals, and won the Championship in the under-16 category and 1st runner-up in the open category of the harp section of the VIII AMIGDALA International Music Competition (Hong Kong region). Most recently Haley was placed 1strunner-up in the 2018 Korea International Harp Competition (Junior Division).
Haley frequently appears as a soloist performer. Her singing and harp performances have been featured in various public media in Hong Kong. She also held a mini recital in October 2017, which was organised by the cultural development division of the Hong Kong government. More recently, she has been invited to deliver solo harp performances in Japan in June and another one in Italy in September.
