Hailed for their ‘breathtaking, passionate and incredibly moving’ performance, the Hong Kong based CitiDuo formed by award-winning cellist Tsz To Wong and pianist Shelley Ng is one of the finest cello-piano duos in Hong Kong.
The duo has performed internationally in North and Central America, Mediterranean Europe, Asia, and the Carribean. In 2016, they were selected as the first-place winner in American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition. In this monumental year, they also made their recital debut at Carnegie Hall in New York, performed in Musica del Cuore in Hong Kong, and broadcast on Radio Television Hong Kong. Collaborating with a local actress, they curated a benefit concert for Heep Hong Society to raise Autism awareness in Hong Kong. In 2019 - 2020, they performed over 250 concerts together as a duo and part of a piano quintet on the flagship of Holland America Line through its partnership with Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. In 2021, they are invited to perform a recital in the St. John’s Cathedral in Hong Kong.
Not knowing their paths would overlap for years to come, Tsz To and Shelley started playing together in 2012 in the Chinese University of Hong Kong and found their passion for chamber music. They studied together at Rice University with full scholarship then the Tanglewood Music Center in 2019. Although they have been in different continents intermittently over the years, they have performed as a group consistently. Their primary mentors include Norman Fischer, Virginia Weckstrom, and Desmond Hoebig. The duo also received additional guidance from Nancy Loo. When they were not performing, they enjoyed volunteering together, including services at WeWah Music in Hong Kong as teachers giving free music classes to less privileged students and K-9 Angels, a no-kill animal shelter in Houston Texas.
