Meet Jungeun

Jung-Eun Kim (piano) appeared on Show 353 as part of an ensemble that performed Alistair Coleman‘s “Images from Fallingwater.”

Jung-Eun Kim has been praised for her musical sensitivity and technical abilities that both excite and move her audiences. She has performed extensively throughout North America and abroad as a soloist, chamber musician and collaborative artist. A native of South Korea, Jung-Eun made her solo debut with the Changwon Philharmonic Orchestra at age 11 performing Tchaikovsky Concerto No. 1. Since she moved to the States, she has been featured on numerous national radio engagements including WUSF National Public Radio, From the Top with composer Alistair Coleman and Hawaii Public Radio with violinist Patrick Galvin.

Equally captivating as a chamber musician, Jung-Eun and her Bay Area-based L’arc Trio received an InterMusic SF grant, which allowed them to commission a brand-new work titled “Ominous Machine” by JUNO Award-winning composer Vivian Fung. She and her piano trio pursue projects that combine new works and classic pillars of the piano trio repertoire into creative, modern programs. Jung-Eun also has collaborated with renowned artists such as Tessa Lark, David McCarroll, Ian Swensen, Matthew Zalkind, Brian Manker, Jean-Michel Fonteneau and Norman Fischer.

As an Osher Foundation Scholar, Jung-Eun completed her Artist Diploma in Piano Performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she also received double Master’s degrees in solo piano and chamber music with Yoshikazu Nagai and Jon Nakamatsu. Jung-Eun has a private studio in the Bay Area and teaches chamber music at SFCM pre-college.
