The Fremont County Community Concert Association will present its second concert of the season on Thursday, November 3rd, at 7 P.M. in the Canon City H.S. Auditorium, 1313 College Ave. Award-winning classical pianist Jeeyoon Kim will perform. Ms. Kim has delighted audiences across the United States and the world with her combination of sensitive artistry, broad emotional range, impeccable technique and engaging and innovative concert experiences, including beautiful videos to complement the music. From the start of her career, beginning with her celebrated 2016 debut album, “10 More Minutes”, Jeeyoon has thrilled classical music fans with her artful performances.
Jeeyoon began studying the piano when she was just four years old, and her love of music propelled her through her undergraduate studies in piano performance in her native Korea. After moving to the United States, she received her Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance with Distinction from Indiana University’s renowned Jacobs School of Music.
In pursuit of a deeper understanding of music education, she earned a second master's degree in piano pedagogy from Butler University where she concurrently served as a faculty member. As a testament to Jeeyoon’s abilities as an educator, she was recognized with the 'Top Music Teacher Award' from Steinway & Sons for three consecutive years from 2016 to 2018. She was also a Double Gold Medal winner for Emerging Artist and Instrumentalist at the Global Music Awards in 2018.
Jeeyoon has shared her fresh perspective on classical piano performance with audiences at venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Chamber Music Society in San Francisco and Stradivari Society in Chicago. Her fast-growing podcast, Journey through Classical Piano, is dedicated to helping people of all musical tastes and backgrounds discover the beauty of classical music. Its 15-minute episodes feature concert-like musical experiences and in-depth exploration of classical compositions.
Jeeyoon is an art activist, author, educator, public speaker, podcaster and award-winning performer. August 2021 she published her first book, “Whenever You’re Ready”, offering readers a personal glimpse into her life. This self-help book in a concert-style structure shares wisdom and insights gained from Jeeyoon's musical experiences. After a successful reception throughout North America and Europe, the book was also published in South Korea in June of 2022, translated into Korean by the author herself. Jeeyoon Kim currently resides in San Diego where she happily practices her piano daily, maintains a studio full of dedicated piano students, and surfs each morning at sunrise.
