Serenade for Strings, Op. 48

Violinist David Kim was named Concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra in 1999. Born in Carbondale, Illinois in 1963, he started playing the violin at the age of three, began studies with the famed pedagogue Dorothy DeLay at the age of eight, and later received his bachelor's and master's degrees from The Juilliard School. In 1986 he was the only American violinist to win a prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and in 1990 was a prizewinner at the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.

Highlights of Mr. Kim's 2013-14 season include a new position as Visiting Professor at the University of Texas at Austin's Butler School of Music; appearances as concertmaster of the All-Star Orchestra in New York City on PBS stations across the USA; an October residency at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music; a return to L'Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne in France for a continuation of his "Eight Seasons of Vivaldi and Piazzolla" project; return visits to the Hyogo Performing Arts Center Orchestra in Japan where he is Artist in Residence; recitals and solo appearances across the United States and Korea; solo appearances with The Philadelphia Orchestra in December; and in April, serving on the jury panel for The Menuhin Competition. As a highly sought-after pedagogue, Mr. Kim presents masterclasses at schools and institutions such as Juilliard, the New World Symphony in Miami, Princeton, Yale, the Korean National University of Arts, and universities and colleges across the United States. He also continues his long association as Artist in Residence at Eastern University in suburban Philadelphia.
