Hee–Soo Yoon


Hee-Soo Yoon is one of today’s aspiring young violinists. Having performed across Canada, the United States, and South Korea, she enjoys sharing her love of music with her audience.

Hee-Soo made her solo debut at 11, performing Vivaldi’s Spring with the Vancouver Symphony, with maestro Bramwell Tovey. Also a recitalist, she has performed with pianists Robert Koenig and Amanda Chan. She frequently collaborates with living composers, including Sofia Gubaidulina, Julian Anderson, Stephen Chatman, and Eduardo Caballero.

In addition to being a soloist, Hee-Soo is also an avid chamber musician. She has performed with members of the Borromeo and Cleveland String Quartets, and has worked with members of the Brentano, Miró, Juilliard, and Mendelssohn String Quartets. She has also coached with many chamber musicians including Thomas Sauer, Katherine Murdock, and Lucy Chapman, among others. She performs frequently with larger ensembles as well, including [nec] shivaree, an avant-garde ensemble based in Boston, and Noree Performing Arts, a Korean dance troupe based in New York.

Hee-Soo began the violin at the age of 3. Today, she continues to share her passion through performances, outreach, and collaboration with fellow musicians. She currently studies with Donald Weilerstein at the New England Conservatory. Previous teachers include David Cerone and Andrew Dawes.

Hee-Soo currently plays on a 1768 Dalla Costa violin, generously on loan to her from the Colburn Foundation.
