Hee-Soo Yoon

Hee-Soo Yoon, violin (Vancouver, Canada), made her solo debut at 11, performing Vivaldi’s Spring with the Vancouver Symphony, with maestro Bramwell Tovey. She has collaborated with many 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 worked with members of the Brentano, Miró, and Juilliard String Quartets. She performs frequently with larger ensembles as well, including [nec] shivaree, an avant-garde ensemble based in Boston, and with Noree Performing Arts, formerly a Korean dance troupe based in New York.

While she enjoys performing in concert halls, Hee-Soo is passionate about bringing music to smaller spaces. Some of her favourite performances include house concerts, which allow her to connect more personally with her audience. Furthermore, she was formerly a Gluck fellow at The Juilliard School, where she brought music to hospitals and homeless shelters throughout New York City.

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. An alum of the New England Conservatory and Juilliard, she currently studies at the Glenn Gould School with Mayumi Seiler.
