A young artist with a unique voice, violinist Eunice Kim has been proclaimed “just superb” by The New York Times and “a born performer” by Epoch Times. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, the Astral Award-winning violinist has been featured soloist with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Louisville Symphony, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Korean Broadcasting Symphony, Seongnam Philharmonic, Bakersfield Symphony, among others. With the Albany Symphony she recorded George Tsontakis’s Unforgettable (Naxos Records). As a guest artist for Curtis on Tour, she has performed in Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Germany with violist Roberto Díaz, and appeared at both the Library of Congress and the United Nations for Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

An avid chamber musician, Ms. Kim has appeared at Music at Angel Fire, Music@Menlo, Ravinia’s Steans Institute of Music, Marlboro Music School and Festival, and has been a frequent guest artist at the Tippet Rise Art Center. She has performed and taught internationally at the Teatro Del Lago Festival in Chile and the Valdres Music Academy in Norway.

She has collaborated with such prominent artists as Miriam Fried, Nobuko Imai, Peter Wiley, Gary Hoffman, Ralph Kirshbaum, Cynthia Raim, and eighth blackbird. With double-bassist Xavier Foley, Eunice Kim has created an adventuresome duo, performing a mix of repertoire from the Baroque onwards, including new compositions by Mr. Foley. Her creative work also includes time with Ensemble39, a contemporary quintet of strings and winds devoted to commissioning new music and pushing the boundaries of the concert experience.

Eunice Kim has degrees from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and from the Curtis Institute of Music, where she studied with Ida Kavafian. She served as concertmaster of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, was the recipient of the Rose Paul Fellowship and was awarded the Milka Violin Artist Prize.
