Grew up in Austria, Birgit Reithofer is a musician and music pedagogue with extensive musical and educational experience.

Reithofer began her tertiary education at the Konservatorium Wien – City of Vienna University where she studied the flute (Music education – voice and instruments) with Professor MeinhardNiedermayr (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra). Apart from the flute, she also focused her studies on early childhood music pedagogy. In 2007, she graduated from the Konservatorium Wien – City of Vienna University with Distinction, major in Elementary Music Education. She received the academic degree Master of Arts from Anton Bruckner University for Music, Drama and Dance in 2014 after having successfully completed the university course “Communicating and Contextualizing Music for Different Audiences”.

Her expertise in the field is demonstrated by the fact that she became a music pedagogue at the Chorus School for the Vienna Boys Choir and the Music Workshop (Spielwerkstatt Musik) before graduation. Right after she graduated from the Konservatorium Wien – City of Vienna University, she joined the Vienna Boys Choir Music Kindergarten, where she works as Music Pedagogue.

Apart from working closely with young children at the Vienna Boys Choir Music Kindergarten, Reithofer also worked in various music education and music mediation projects and concerts for different audiences (planning and implementation – on and behind the stage), including programmes at the MuTh, the official concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir and the Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz – Museum of Modern Art. She also led Music Exploration Camps in Hong Kong in 2010, 2011 and 2015 respectively, which were greatly complimented by parents and children.

Today we introduce Mr Warren Lee
A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music and Yale School of Music with the highest honours, Warren was the first-prize winner of the 1995 Stravinsky Awards International Piano Competition and the Grand Prix Ivo Pogorelich. Warren’s artistry has brought him to four continents, gracing stages of all sizes and forms and in collaboration with international artists and leading orchestras in Asia.

As an educator off the stage, Warren is currently the Music Director of St. Paul’s Co-educational College and Primary School; and co-currently a guest professor at the Central Conservatory of Music EOS Orchestra Academy, the Hong Kong Representative of Royal Academy of Music, as well as an adjunct faculty and visiting artist in various institutions in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Australia and the United Kingdom. His solo album From Bach To Gershwin, released on Universal Music (Hong Kong) was lauded as “a success that Hong Kong can be proud of”; while his album Ebony and Ivory with clarinetist Andrew Simon on Naxos Music, also garnered favourable reviews worldwide. Releases in 2016 include Touches from East and West: Piano Music by Tan Dun and Bernstein as well as Schubert’s Sonatinas for Violin and Piano, both on Naxos Music.
