Classical pianist Jeeyoon Kim delights audiences with her sensitive artistry, colorful musical expression and insightful commentary from the stage. Gordon Brown from classical radio station XLNC-FM writes, “She is simply a force of nature, one who lives for that special connection with a live audience . . .”
Susan Kitterman, former Artistic Director from New World Youth Symphony, exclaims, “Exquisite, absolutely phenomenal! Jeeyoon is the thread that runs through each piece and illuminates the composer’s as well as her most inner longings and desires for the music . . .”
Jeeyoon’s most recent album, “10 More Minutes,” was released in December, 2016. The album is a collection of encore pieces that Jeeyoon has performed over the years when both the audience and the performer long for “10 more minutes” of connection before the concert concludes.
Today, as a classical concert pianist, Jeeyoon performs for audiences in concert halls all over the United States, from San Francisco to New York, such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Chamber Music Society in San Francisco, Stradivari Society in Chicago, La Jolla Music Society Discovery Series, Captivate Artists Experience Series in San Francisco, San Diego Symphony Chamber Music Series, and at the Mozarteum Festival in Salzburg, Austria. As an active chamber musician, she has collaborated with other soloists including violinist Phillippe Quint, Ning Feng and Cellist Johannes Moser.
Jeeyoon Kim began studying the piano when she was just four years old. Her love of music and the piano propelled her through her undergraduate studies in piano performance in Korea, and onto Indiana University’s renowned Jacob School of Music where she earned a Master’s Degree and a Doctorate Degree in Piano Performance with a full scholarship, graduating with a distinction.
On October 29, 2017, Jeeyoon was the featured soloist playing George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” at Hilbert Circle Theatre in Indianapolis with the New World Youth Philharmonic and Symphony Orchestras, conducted by Adam Bodony. She was also back to Indiana this April 2018 with Purdue University Orchestra as a soloist.
Jeeyoon made her successful sold-out Carnegie Hall debut on December 14, 2017 with sensational reviews. She has just launched her new album/concert project called ‘Over, Above, Beyond” releasing on December 9th in 2018.
