A Florida Debut
HYE-JIN KIM, Violin
At age 12, Hye-Jin Kim not only soloed in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 in A, she also led the performance by the Hannover Chamber Orchestra. At age 19, she won the 2004 Yehudi Menuhin International Competition, prompting The Strad to credit her with “… supremely musical playing, well thought out, yet of the moment.” A 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition winner, Kim has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra with Christoph Eschenbach, the New Jersey Symphony, BBC Concert Orchestra, and Seoul Philharmonic. A passionate chamber musician, she has collaborated with her teachers Jaime Laredo, Ida Kavafian and Miriam Fried; Musicians from Marlboro, and the Guarneri, Juilliard and Miami String Quartets.
