phoenix-park-kimDr. Phoenix Park-Kim, Professor of Piano at Indiana Wesleyan University, has given recitals throughout the United States, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Italy, Switzerland, Argentina and Russia including performances in various music festivals such as the Aspen Summer Music Festival, Piano Texas, Wiener Meisterkurses in Vienna, Austria, and the Summer Music School in Siena.

 

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Phoenix began playing the piano at the age of five and gave her first public performance at seven years old. She has won top prizes at national and international competitions including first place at the Miami Concerto Competition, Jefferson City Concerto Competition, Kansas City Philharmonic Concerto Competition, and was a finalist at the Liszt-Garrison International Piano Competition. She appeared as a soloist with the Korean Philharmonic Orchestra, Kansas City Philharmonia, UMKC, and Marion Philharmonic Orchestras among others. An avid chamber musician, Phoenix has performed with the Oxford String Quartet, Duo Dolce, Soprani Compagni and appeared at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall as part of the Distinguished Concerts Artist Series. She has been heard on public radio in Indianapolis, IN, Toledo, OH, Ann Arbor, MI, Urbana, IL, Richmond, VA, Princeton, NJ and Ontario Canada.

 

Phoenix is dedicated to providing more exposure to less known repertoire especially music by African-American composers. In this endeavor, she was awarded the Lilly research grant and also received special congressional recognition by U.S. Rep. Karen Bass. Her recent CD “Deep River,” a collection of Classical works by African American composers, was released under the MSR Classics label. Her other recordings are also available on cdbaby.com and iTunes.
