It’s been a while since violinist Siwoo Kim was on Show 159 in Columbus, Ohio in 2007. Now, Siwoo tells us he’s a senior at The Juilliard School and it seems like he’s becoming a flourishing performer! As the winner of  Juilliard’s violin concerto competition, he will be performing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 with the Juilliard Orchestra (under direction of acclaimed conductor James DePreist) on Monday, December 5 at 8pm in Carnegie Hall. Tickets are $15 or $30, and can be ordered online at or by calling (212) 247-7800. More information can be found in the concert press release (From the Top gets a shout out in Siwoo’s bio!)

This past year, Siwoo has also performed solo concertos with the Tulsa and Springfield (MO) Symphonies. Since appearing on From the Top, he has won numerous competitions, including the 2010 Corpus Christi International Competition in which he took second place.

We hope Siwoo continues to have fantastic performances and wish him luck in this upcoming concert!
