Ariana Kim

Noted by The New York Times for giving "the proceedings an invaluable central thread of integrity and stylishness" and having "played with soulful flair," violinist Ariana Kim made her New York recital debut at Carnegie's Weill Hall in 2008 and is now in her fourth year as a professor at Cornell University.  At 16, Ariana made her debut with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and at 24 was appointed acting concertmaster of the Louisiana Philharmonic in New Orleans and has since become one of the most respected artists of her generation.

An avid chamber musician of both the contemporary and traditional literature, Ariana served 10 seasons as a member of the New Yorker-acclaimed New York new music ensemble, Ne(x)tworks, which made their international debut at the John Cage Festival in Berlin performing Cage’s “Song Books” to a packed house alongside the Maulwerker Company in March 2013.  In February of 2016, Ariana was honored to join the Aizuri String Quartet which recently completed a residency at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and the Caramoor Festival.  Her debut season with the group includes performances at Toronto's Royal Conservatory and the Kennedy Center, as well as residencies at the University of North Carolina and Cornell University.  

She now marks her 10th season with The Knights, a New York-based imaginative and diverse musical collective that performs programs ranging from string quartets to bluegrass tunes and Mid-East folk music, to the great chamber orchestra masterpieces of the 20th century.  In January of 2015, the group released its seventh album, …the ground beneath our feet – a collection of live performances from a recent U.S. tour – for Warner Classics, on which Ariana is a featured soloist in Steve Reich’s Duo for two violins and strings, alongside Guillaume Pirard; that track has since received much acclaim and was chosen as one of NPR's "Songs We Love” for 2015.

Raised in Minnesota by parents Ellen and Young-Nam whom were her teachers from age 3-17, Ariana finds another musical home in her native Twin Cities as she is now in her 11th season with the Chamber Music Society of Minnesota.  Recent collaborations have included performances with violinist Robert Mann, cellists Fred Sherry and Peter Wiley, violist Samuel Rhodes, and clarinetist Charles Neidich.  The CMSM is preparing for their 25th anniversary season which will include the release of a new live compilation album, the premiere of two new commissions, and a roster of renowned guest artists including pianist Leon Fleisher and violist Nobuko Imai.

Ariana has spent summers at Ravinia's Steans Institute, Yellow Barn, and Orford Centre d'Arts.  A passionate pedagogue, Ariana spends much of the academic year teaching and mentoring a full studio of talented collegiate students at Cornell; this summer, she will join the faculty of the Palo Alto Chamber Music Workshop for the 15th consecutive year, the Northern Lights Chamber Music Institute for the ninth time, and the Crowden Music Center Chamber Music Institute for the second time.  She volunteers annually with two Title One schools in San Jose, CA and has presented master classes throughout the U.S. and abroad at such institutions as Kent State University, The MacPhail Center, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  She will join the faculty and performing artists of the Campanile Festival at San Diego State University in the Fall of 2016.

Currently, Ariana co-resides in Ithaca and New York City where she received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Juilliard under the tutelage of Robert Mann.  In recent seasons, Ariana presented the chamber works of Andy Akiho with Brooklyn Rider at the American Academy in Rome, a recital entitled "Immersion" featuring the pairing of the 18th-century keyboard with Mid-Eastern hand drumming traditions with fortepianist Roger Moseley and percussionist Shane Shanahan.  A recipient of an Affinito-Stewart Grant and a Society for the Humanities Grant, Ariana released her first solo album Routes of Evanescence nationally in December of 2015 and internationally in March of 2016 which features works for solo violin and violin + 1 written by American women composers including Ruth Crawford Seeger, Augusta Read Thomas, and Jennifer Curtis.  From January through July of 2016, Ariana was on leave from Cornell living and working in Italy presenting lecture performances, private teaching, performing with Milano Classica, solo recital tours in Tuscany and Umbria, and and curating a cultural diplomacy public art project involving the Cornell Composition Department, the Cornell Architecture program in Rome, and a group of North African and Mid-East refugees.  She will return to Italy in the summer of 2017 for recitals at the Morellino Classica and Paesaggi Musicali Toscana festivals.
