Yoorhi Choi

British International School of Chicago, South Loop | Private School Chicago


I am an active soloist and chamber musician in the United States and South Korea, and 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, I hold bachelor's and master's degrees from The Juilliard School where I studied with Dorothy Delay, Hyo Kang and David Chan. I also hold an Artists Diploma from Yale University and am currently a doctoral candidate at Northwestern University under Professor Blair Milton.

I came to the United States in 1999 when I started studying with Dorothy Delay and Catherine Cho. Admitted as a full-­scholarship student at The Juilliard School, I have 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. I have 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, I am 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, I have given masterclasses at universities including University of Central Missouri and University of Wisconsin-­Whitewater. I am a member of Chicago-based Stellio Trio.
