My Blog (written in Korean) at blog.naver.com/jhjascha
I got into "blogging" in the fall of 2008 and have posted my thoughts on music, espresso, cafes, food and traveling. I now have over 600 followers and about 400-500 visits per day. :)
Violinist Benjamin Sung at www.benjaminsung.com
My wonderful husband/ Assistant professor at Florida State University/ Concertmaster of Fargo-Moorhead Symphony/ and principal second violinist of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra.
Composer David Dzubay at www.pronovamusic.com
Conductor and director of the New Music Ensemble at Indiana University/ Composition Faculty at Indiana University/ 2007 Guggenheim fellow. I was a member of IU NME for a few years, and had great time working with him. Also my independent studies were conducted under his guidance. I and my husband Ben Sung, violinist, had a lot of fun working on his piece “Capriccio” for violin and piano and have performed it several times.
Composer Garrett Byrnes at www.musicacosmopolita.us
He composed a set of six piano etudes (Cosmopolitan Etudes) in 2003 and was looking for a pianist to perform them. He was a friend of Ben, and I reluctantly agreed to play them at the composition department recital. It was received with so much enthusiasm (and the pieces were great – they were dedicated to me, consiquently) that I started playing more new music and in the new music ensemble. I owe great thanks to Garrett!
Indiana University School of Music at www.music.indiana.edu
I feel obliged to put a link to the place I spent almost 8 years of my 20s..
Tanglewood Music Center at www.bso.org/tmc
I spent two summers at Tanglewood as an Instrumental Piano Fellow. TMC experience was among the most important musical events of my life. The performance of Ligeti Horn Trio at Ozawa Hall in 2005 made me feel like a musician, not a student. It is a beautiful place with great music and performances.
