Classical pianist Jeeyoon Kim will have her Carnegie Hall debut presented by Captivate Artists on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at Weill Recital Hall. She will perform selected pieces from her latest album, “10 More Minutes” which Jeeyoon has often performed as encores, the result of audiences asking her to play for “ten more minutes” of her captivating artistry.
Jeeyoon Kim’s concert events combine dazzling technical mastery and profound musicianship with her personal commentary on stage. Audiences will experience a new, more engaging way of listening to a classical concert. Gordon Brown from Classical Radio Station XLNC-FM proclaims “She is simply a force of nature, one who lives for that special connection with a live audience”. Jeeyoon states, “I envision this album as if we are enjoying “tapas”, instead of a heavy five-course meal. This “musical light fare” includes familiar works by Schubert, Chopin, Schumann and Debussy”.
Jeeyoon received her Doctorate of Music and Masters of Music in Piano Performance from Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. A recent winner of the Beverly Hills National Audition for classical musicians in 2017-18 season, Jeeyoon will perform a series of concerts across the country, and as a soloist playing Rhapsody in Blue at the Hilbert Theatre in Indianapolis. She is a frequent performer for Chamber Music San Francisco, PianoForte Salon Live Series, and the La Jolla Music Society Discovery Series, among others.
