Korean violinist Inmo Yang has been hailed by the Boston Globe for his “seamless technique and a tender warmth of tone,” combined with “an ability to project an engaging sense of inner sincerity through his playing.” Born in Indonesia to a Korean family in 1995, Yang debuted at age 11 on the Ewon Prodigy Series in Seoul. He graduated from the Korean National Institute for the Gifted in Arts in February 2011 and was then admitted into the Korean National University of Arts as a prodigy in music. In 2014, Yang won second prize in the Menuhin Competition. He currently attends the New England Conservatory of Music, where he is the only violinist in its highly selective Artist Diploma program.

Praised as an “artist already of enormous prowess” (Verbier Festival Newsletter) with “lots of clarity, confidence, and wisdom” (New York Concert Review), pianist Sahun Hong brings his colorful style and riveting energy to the solo, chamber, and concerto stage. On the roster of Young Steinway Artists since 2010, Hong has been featured as a guest soloist with the ORF-Vienna, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Camerata New York, Fort Worth, Richardson, Racine, Waco, Galveston, and Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestras. At age 16, Hong graduated magna cum laude from Texas Christian University with a bachelor of music in piano performance, studying with John Owings. He is currently a student of Leon Fleisher in the doctor of musical arts program at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University.
