VC Artist Timothy Chooi Joins Musique University of Ottawa Faculty

Canadian-American violinist will become a professor of violin as of July 1, 2021

He will join Yosuke Kawasaki, Jean-Hee Lee, and Jessica Linnebach in the violin department at the University of Ottawa.

"I'm a huge advocate in guiding young people to become leaders in the 21st century while exploring the numerous possibilities in being a musician today. In addition, I’m thrilled to continue building my performing career so that I can share these experiences with aspiring violinists. This is an incredible position to be in, and I am grateful to have this opportunity at this point in my career."

"The School of Music is thrilled to welcome Timothy Chooi as Professor of Violin," said uOttawa on social media. "Prof. Chooi is a dazzling and moving performer, an insightful teacher, and the winner of many prestigious awards."
