The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has today announced Korean-born Canadian violinist Dennis Kim as their new Concertmaster.
A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Yale School of Music, Dennis, 40 has served Concertmaster positions with the Tucson Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Seoul Philharmonic and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, in Finland.
‘In Dennis Kim, the BPO has found a brilliant violinist, a consummate musician and a world-renowned concertmaster … the musicians and I are absolutely delighted that he has accepted the invitation to join our orchestra,’ Music Director JoAnn Falletta has said.
The position had been vacant since 2014, when Michael Ludwig stepped down to pursue a solo career.
Dennis’ first performance will take place on September 16th.
