After School Arts with Juilliard: Chamber Music Programme

January 11, 2018

  • Juilliard

We are extremely pleased to welcome Yoorhi Choi as one of our instructors for this term’s Chamber Music Programme. This program is the first of its kind in all the Nord Anglia schools, and we hope that the excitement for this art will spread to our sister schools as well!

Yoorhi is an active soloist and chamber musician in the United States and South Korea and the top prizewinner of numerous competitions, including Kingsville International Competition, Artists International Competition, Young Artists Competition, Korean Times Competition, and Thavis Competition.

As a recipient of a full scholarship, she holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School where she studied with Dorothy Delay, Hyo Kang and David Chan. She also holds an Artists Diploma from Yale University and is currently a doctoral candidate at Northwestern University under Professor Blair Milton.

She came to the United States in 1999 when she started studying with Dorothy Delay and Catherine Cho. Admitted as a full­scholarship student at The Juilliard School, she has performed on the prestigious stages of Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center, Carnegie‐Weill Hall, Seoul Arts Center, and The Juilliard School as a soloist and chamber musician. She has worked with great coaches such as Tokyo String Quartet, Toby Appel, Jacob Lateiner, Rohan DeSilva, Earl Carlyss, Nicholas Mann, Shoko Aki, and Jonathan Feldman. As an orchestral musician, she is a member of Peninsula Music Festival, guest artist of Symphonie Song, Seoul Philharmonic, and New Haven Symphony.

Addition to teaching undergraduate students at Northwestern University, she has given master classes at universities including University of Central Missouri and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. She is also a member of the Chicago-based chamber ensemble, Stellio Trio – this group visited us last term and gave a beautiful performance at our Chamber Programme introductory session.

Plans for an informal salon performance will be announced in March. We hope you will join us for the showcase!
