Michael Jinsoo Lim Michael Jinsoo Lim

The Syracuse University Symphony Orchestra will present a concert with guest violinist Michael Jinsoo Lim.

Lim has been praised by Gramophone for playing with “delicious abandon” and described as “bewitching” by the Seattle Times. Since 2009, Lim has been concertmaster and solo violinist of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra (“surely the best ballet band in America”-- New York Times). Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a “conspicuously accomplished champion of contemporary music” for his work as co-founder of the renowned Corigliano Quartet, Lim is also a member of Open End, a New York City-based ensemble specializing in new works and improvisation. Recent highlights include the world premiere of Andrew Waggoner’s violin concerto, written for Lim, and live performances on Danish Public Radio.
