Jeeyoon Kim, piano: Together Again /si-úm/

  • Details

    Classical pianist Jeeyoon Kim delights audiences with innovative concert experiences imbued with a sparkling combination of sensitive artistry, broad emotional range, and impeccable technique. A native of South Korea, Kim has inspired a dedicated and passionate fan base by defying conventional wisdom and expanding on the traditional classical concert experience. Her 2016 debut album, 10 More Minutes, featured a conversation with the audience from onstage. For her next act, Jeeyoon collaborated with New York-based visual artist, Moonsub Shin, to create a multimedia masterpiece, Over. Above. Beyond.

    Jeeyoon began studying piano when she was just four years old, and her love of music and the piano propelled her through her undergraduate studies in piano performance in her native Korea. After moving to the U.S., she graduated with distinction on full scholarship from Indiana University’s renowned Jacob School of Music with a master’s degree and a doctorate degree in piano performance.

    She is an art activist, educator, podcaster, author, and award-winning performer. Today, between performances at venues including Carnegie Hall, the Chamber Music Society in San Francisco, and the Stradivari Society in Chicago, Jeeyoon remains focused on finding new ways with which to connect with audiences, bringing a fresh perspective to the classical piano repertoire.
