Yekwon Sunwoo is returning to North Texas on October 3rd to launch his international tour.
In June of this year, Yekwon Sunwoo became the first Korean to win the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Gold Medal.
Hailed for “his total command over the instrument and its expressiveness”(San Francisco Examiner), the alumnus of Curtis, Juilliard, and Mannes has performed in recital across the United States, Europe, and Asia.
He is returning to North Texas for another unforgettable recital.
“…sometimes boldly projected, sometimes intimately hushed, but always with a strongly personal stamp.” – Dallas Morning News
“While the performance was underway, Muhammad Ali’s famous quote ‘Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee’ came to my mind.” – Star-Telegram
