Dami Kim


Dami Kim, who was born in South Korea in 1988, began playing the violin at the age of five. In 2002 she was admitted to the Aaron Rosand's class at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philhadelphia.

She subsequently studied with Miriam Fried at the New England Conservatory in Boston, where she graduated with a Master's degree in 2012.

In 2012 she was not only a laureate at the International Queen Elisabeth Competition but also won first prize in the Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition in Hanover.

As part of the prize she was presented with a violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini. She was awarded further prizes in the Premio Paganini International Violin Competition, for example, where she also won the prize for the best interpretation of a Paganini Caprice.

The Korean violinist has performed with several orchestras throughout Europe, America and Asia, such as the NDR Radio Philharmonic, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie and the Philadelphia Orchestra. She has worked with renowned artists such as Shlomo Mintz, Donald Weilerstein, Curtis Macomber, Atar Arad and Itamar Golan. She also has a particular interest in chamber music and takes part regularly in chamber music festivals such as the Ravinia Festival, the Yellow Barn Festival, the Taos Festival and the Aspen Music Festival.

From 2013 to 2016 Dami Kim studied as a Young Soloist at Kronberg Academy with Mihaela Martin. These studies were funded by the Lutz Raettig Stipendium. She currently performs on a Stradivarius, 1731 on loan from Yellow Angel Foundation in Japan.
