Dr. Hyejin Kim leads an exciting career as soloist, chamber musician, orchestral musician, and conductor. Dr. Kim has judged at Howard county solo and ensemble auditions, American Asian Music Society’s International competition, and MSMTA/ASTA solo competition. She attended Catholic University of America with music scholarship, graduating with Doctor of Musical Arts, and received Master of Music from Peabody Institutey. 

She won the first place at 2013 American Protégé International Piano & String competition and was invited to play at Carnegie Hall in 2013. She received scholarship at Aspen Music Festival, Bowdoin Summer Music Festival.

Dr. Kim worked as a member of string and chamber faculty at Levine school of music for eight years. Currently, Dr. Kim is a conductor at Bridge Youth Orchestra, a solo violist at the Friday Morning Club, and a violist at the Bethesda Summer Music Festival. Her viola instrument is made by Luis Manfio modeled after Andrea Guarneri.

Known as “a virtuosic soloist possessed of power, sensitivity, earthiness, and humor” (Whitney Smith, Indianapolis Star) with the “power to make an audience sit up and pay attention...thought-provoking for performers and listeners alike” (James Manheim, All Music Guide ), Michael Sheppard studied with the legendary Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory.

He was selected by the American Pianists Association as a Classical Fellow, which designation led to the recording of his Harmonia Mundi CD of 2007. In 2018, another recording will be released by Azica, a Cleveland-based label distributed worldwide by Naxos Records. He has performed solo recitals and concertos around the world, as well as across the USA, including several solo Weill (Carnegie) Hall recitals and a solo Kennedy Center debut. As a funny little matter of fact, he happens to have given solo recitals in the hometowns of both Mahler (Jihlava, Czech Republic) and Elvis (Tupelo, Mississippi), and enjoys taking in the local culture wherever in the world he finds himself.
