Featuring Soovin Kim, violin

Soovin Kim

Saturday, October 12 – Holloway Hall Auditorium, 7:30 p.m.

Soovin Kim enjoys a broad musical career regularly performing Bach sonatas and Paganini caprices for solo violin, sonatas for violin and piano ranging from Beethoven to Ives, Mozart and Haydn concertos and symphonies as a conductor, and new world-premiere works almost every season. Among his many commercial recordings are his acclaimed disc of Paganini's 24 Caprices and a two-disc set of Bach's complete solo violin works to be released in 2019. When he was 20 years old Mr. Kim received first prize at the Paganini International Violin Competition. He is the founder and Co-Artistic Director of the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival (LCCMF) in Burlington, Vermont. He was bestowed an honorary doctorate by the University of Vermont for the LCCMF’s great contributions to its community. In 2020 he and his wife, pianist Gloria Chien, will become Co-Artistic Directors of Chamber Music Northwest in Portland, Oregon. Mr. Kim devotes much of his time to his passion for teaching at the New England Conservatory in Boston.
