Meet our Resident Artist

According to renowned pianist Phillip Moll, SooJung Kwon “plays from the heart.” A native of South Korea, her passion for collaboration has led her to work as a piano accompanist in the Leipzig Opera House under Conductor Riccardo Chailly and with the studios of Scott Flavin and Ross Harbaugh at the University of Miami.

 

Kwon received her master’s from Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Batholdy,” one of the leading institutions for professional music education in Europe. There, she studied with Helmut Weese and specialized in chamber music. Kwon pursued additional studies with Felix Michael Deichmann at Folkwang Universität der Künste, and Paul Posnak at the University of Miami.

 

Recently, Kwon won a full scholarship and teaching assistant position in the studio of Dr. Irena Kofman at Florida Atlantic University, where she teaches private lessons and coaches chamber music groups.  In addition, she has expanded her wealth of talent to teach piano to children. Her students have won various competitions and have been accepted into prestigious music schools.

 

Kwon actively performs as both a solo and collaborative pianist in Korea, Germany and the United States.  Her upcoming projects in the U.S. include collaborating with pianists and performing with Cameron Hewes in the clarinet and piano Dark Brew Duo.

 

We are honored to have SooJung Kwon as our Resident Artist!
