SIWOO KIM is an “incisive” and “compelling” (Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times) violinist who plays with “stylistic sensitivity and generous tonal nuance” (John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune). Siwoo performs as soloist and chamber musician and is also the founding co-artistic director of VIVO Music Festival in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
Siwoo made his New York concerto debut at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium with James DePreist and the Juilliard Orchestra. He made his Walt Disney Concert Hall concerto debut shortly after. In addition, he has given concerto performances with the Columbus, Houston, Johannesburg, Kwazulu-Natal, Seongnam, Springfield (MO), and Tulsa symphony orchestras, among others. Siwoo gave the world premiere performance of Samuel Adler’s violin concerto and will be recording the work in Germany this season to coincide with the composer’s 90th anniversary.
