In conjunction with teaching a masterclass at Lee, Mr. Kim will perform with the CSO on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. as part of its masterworks series. 

Mr. Kim is an internationally distinguished violinist. In addition to receiving the First Place Prize at the Paganini International Competition at age 20, he has also been the recipient of awards such as the Henryk Szeryng Career Award, the Avery Fisher Career Grant, and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award. 

In 2009, he founded the Lake Champlain Music Festival in Burlington, Vt., which has quickly gained national attention for its musical excellence. 

Mr. Kim has released nine CDs and is currently working on a tenth. He performs frequently throughout Vermont with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, on the Lane Series at the University of Vermont, and at the Rochester Chamber Music Society series, among others. 

He currently teaches violin at the New England Conservatory of Music and has previously taught at SUNY- Stony Brook and the Peabody Conservatory of Music. 

The masterclass is a free, non-ticketed event, and open to the public. Squires Recital Hall is in Lee’s Humanities Center on Parker Street.
