Each year, student nominees from the University of Illinois School of Music audition for Krannert Center’s Debut Artist competition. As the winner of this competition, soprano Yunji Shim will present a recital on the Foellinger Great Hall stage to launch her professional career as part of Krannert Center's Marquee Sunday Salon Series. Previous winners now teach and perform throughout the world. This performance presents an opportunity to experience the emerging artistry of a rising young musician and see history in the making.
In her Krannert Center Debut Artist recital, Kim will perform selections from Reynaldo Hahn, Richard Strauss, Stefano Donaudy, Luigi Arditi, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Ernest Charles. Pianist Hana Lim will accompany her.
This performance will last approximately one hour and 20 minutes, and includes a 20-minute intermission.
