24-year-old American violinist Stephen Kim is quickly building an international reputation as a rising young virtuoso of outstanding potential.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute where he studied with Shmuel Ashkenasi, Aaron Rosand and Joseph Silverstein, and current student of Hyo Kang at The Juilliard School, Stephen is a former major prize winner at the Seoul, Sendai, Menuhin and Paganini International Violin Competitions - and earlier this year was awarded 3rd prize at the 2019 Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition.

His recent debuts include solo performances with the Brussels Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liege, Belgian National Orchestra, Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, Curtis Chamber Orchestra, Austin Symphony Orchestra, Suwon Philharmonic Orchestra, Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra and the l’Orchestra del Teatro Carlo Felice.

Stephen currently performs on the 1725 ex-Moller Guarneri del Gesù violin - on generous loan from the Samsung Foundation of Culture and the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
