Clarinettist Stephenie Ng started learning the clarinet at the age of thirteen. She earned a Bachelor’s degree of music with First Class Honours at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 2011. A recipient of numerous scholarships, she pursued master’s and doctoral degrees in the United States. Her principal teachers include May Lam, John Schertle, Ayako Oshima and Charles Neidich.
As a versatile clarinettist, Ng performs frequently as a chamber musician and is interested in rarely-performed repertoire : from performing arrangements of Baroque music with Berkshire Bach Society to music of 21st Century American composers Douglas Townsend and Gregg Smith. Ng is also dedicated to new music in academic and performing contexts. In 2015, she premièred and recorded Reiko Füting's Gesegn dich, Laub for clarinet and cello. Her doctoral thesis, titled "Stefan Wolpe: Suite im Hexachord: Influences from the Bauhaus in Weimar," explores the multidisciplinary arts aesthetics in modern arts.
Ng has recently earned the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Manhattan School of Music, where she was appointed the coordinator of Woodwind Lab from 2014-16. She joined the faculty of the HKAPA Junior Music Programme in 2017.
Ng has been a core member of the NOVA Ensemble since 2018, and is the ensemble’s administrative coordinator.
