Eunrae Kim, age 11, started piano lessons at the age of 7 and won her first piano competition a year later at the Performance Arts Festival of the Eastside. That same year, she won a Silver Medal at the Chopin Foundation of the United States Piano Competition, and by age 10, she won Gold. As a King-FM Young Artist Competition entrant in 2018, she was selected to perform a piano solo at the 2018 Ten Grands concert at Benaroya Hall. She also won the Steinway Competition Bronze Medal. At the 2018 Russian Chamber Music Foundation competition, Eunrae was the first pianist to win Gold Medal in three different categories, and in 2019, she was invited to perform and play for the Seattle Symphony as a finalist of their talent search competition. To date, Eunrae has garnered over 51 competition medals and is now enjoying public performing with upcoming concerts at Benaroya hall, King-FM, and various symphony orchestras. Eunrae also loves chamber music and performs trios regularly with her two older brothers who play violin and cello. Eunrae is currently a 6th grader at King’s School.

In addition to his summers studying with Hans Jørgen Jensen at Meadowmount School of Music, in previous summers he has studied with Alison Wells at Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival and Jeffrey Lastrapes at Interlochen Center for the Arts.
