Tune in on June 5 at 12 PM (ET) for a program of works by Isang Yun, Dvořák, and Smetana

We're coming to you from the Kronberg Academy in Kronberg im Taunus, Germany, for the weekly concert of the Kronberg Academy Young Virtuosi Series, featuring cellist Minjoung Kim. For this concert, entitled "Voyage de la vie," Minjoung is joined by violinist Inmo Yang, Hana Chang, violist Nicholas Swensen, and pianist Martina Consonni.

A graduate of Musik-Akademie Basel and the Reina Sofía School of Music, Minjoung has won awards in major international competitions, including the International Paulo Cello Competition in Helsinki, the Benedetto Mazzacurati International Cello Competition in Turin, the Grand Prix Emanuel Feuermann in Berlin and the Prague Spring International Music Competition. She has appeared with international orchestras such as the Incheon Philharmonic Orchestra, Suwon Philharmonic Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, Jyväskylä Sinfonia, Orchestre Musique des Lumières and the Gstaad Festival Orchestra. Previously a student of Ivan Monighetti and Sol Gabetta, Minjoung has been studying at Kronberg Academy with Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt since October 2020.

Every Wednesday at 12 PM (ET), audiences can watch an hour-long concert featuring the Kronberg Academy's students from the Professional Studies program and the Sir András Schiff Performance Program for Young Pianists. Recorded at the Carl Bechstein Hall, the recital programs were designed by the young artists themselves, and often feature their friends from the Academy’s Bachelor and Master programs performing alongside them.
