Jeeyoon Kim - Piano Recital @ PianoForte Studios

Classical Pianist Jeeyoon Kim will give a solo piano concert, featuring her newest album ‘Over. Above. Beyond.

Jeeyoon’s concert events combine dazzling technical mastery and profound musicianship with her personal commentary on stage. The ‘Over. Above. Beyond.’ concert will also feature a unique collaboration with newly commissioned visual art by NY based illustrator, Moonsub Shin. Each of the twelve drawings by Mr. Shin depicts a movement of Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 21, No. 1 by Johannes Brahms, nicknamed the ‘philosophical variations’.

Audiences will experience a more engaging way of listening to a classical concert with her commentary on stage. It is one-hour concert without an intermission

“As a pianist, one of the most rewarding moments is when I feel that I have lifted someone’s soul with my playing and when I feel that I am deeply connected with listeners in the very moment of sharing music. It has became clear to me that it is why I make music. Through ‘Over. Above. Beyond.’, my wish is to give an audience a sense of hope, lightness, and a new beginning. These are pieces that have given me a sense of joy, weightlessness, and peace. Join me for this special flight and receive what music has given to us. Together let’s fly Over. Above. Beyond! -Jeeyoon

Some testimonials about Jeeyoon Kim:
“A unique experience of shared feeling…In that sharing we find ourselves…” -from the Carnegie Hall debut review

“In addition to her mastery of the instrument, Jeeyoon’s music-making transcends the piano, and has the ability to transport the listener directly into the world of the composer. So captivating and powerful…” -Demarre McGill, Principal Flute at Seattle Symphony

“Beautiful control of the Instrument, superior technique, and all of that emotion shows up in her sound as well as watching her. I am awed by her talent. It would be criminal for the world not to hear Jeeyoon perform.” -Gary Walters, performing artist and jazz pianist
