Hyunchae Kim

Kayageum virtuoso, Hyun-chae Kim, will make her American debut in a solo concert of works for kayageum (a Korean zither-like instrument). The program will have both traditional and new Korean music including recent work by Kim herself and Bay Area composer Hyo-shin Na. Ms. Kim is a young musician from Korea who has performed solo concerts juxtaposing traditional and contemporary works for kayageum throughout Asia and Europe, and has been a member of the traditional Korean instrument ensemble JeongGaAkHoe, which specializes in playing traditional vocal and instrumental chamber music as well as commissioning new works. For this concert, Hyo-shin Na has composed two new works, Song of the Firewood and Kayageum Song.
