Milton Keynes City Orchestra (MKCO) is delighted that gifted Korean Violinist Hyeyoon Park will debut with them on 9th June at The Venue Milton Keynes. Hyeyoon will perform the beautiful Beethoven Violin Concerto in an uplifting programme that includes Mozart Symphony No.39 and Saint-Georges L’Amant Anonyme Overture under the baton of Damian Iorio.
Twenty-five year old Hyeyoon Park made her orchestra debut at the age of nine with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, she has performed with world renowned orchestras such as London Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony and MDR Leipzig Orchestras, Mariinsky Orchestra St. Petersburg, New Japan Philharmonic and Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
She appears regularly as a recitalist and chamber musician and has collaborated with Gidon Kremer, András Schiff, Yuri Bashmet, Lars Vogt, Daniel Hope, Antje Weithaas, Benjamin Grosvenor and Huw Watkins.
Born in 1992, Hyeyoon has studied at the Korean National University of Arts and the University of Cincinnati. She continued her studies at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin and with Christian Tetzlaff at Kronberg Academy, where she completed her Master’s degree in 2016. She was the youngest ever first prize winner of the ARD International Music Competition in 2011.
MKCO Chairman Marian Livingstone said;” Hyeyoon is the fifth International star to join MKCO and perform in our 2017 MK50 series of celebration concerts.
