Chloe Kim – Violinist

Chloe Kim

Canadian violinist Chloe Kim has performed at prominent concert venues around the world, sharing the stage in both principal and soloist capacities with international figures such as Rachel Podger, Pablo Heras-Casado, Richard Egarr, and Nicholas McGegan.  The recipient of numerous awards including the 2020 Mercury-Juilliard Fellowship, Juilliard Historical Performance Fellowship, and the 2016 Early Music America Scholarship, Chloe was most recently nominated for the prestigious Sylva Gelber Music Foundation Award.

Chloe’s most memorable engagements include an all-women Vivaldi tour led by inspirational violinist, Monica Huggett, as well as two recent trips to France for collaborations with William Christie and Les Arts Florissants.  Last summer, Chloe served as concertmaster of Juilliard415 for several sold-out productions of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, led by Avi Stein in London and the Versailles Royal Opera.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, season highlights would have included touring as concertmaster with Juilliard415 and Nic McGegan for performances of Handel’s Rinaldo in New York, Germany, and the Netherlands as well as a UK tour with Richard Egarr and Philharmonia.  Instead, Chloe is excited to present Music for the Pause, an online chamber music series cosponsored by multiple organizations and produced in beautiful Victoria, BC.  She is deeply grateful for the beloved West Coast colleagues that she considers family, and is especially indebted to her mentors, Elizabeth Blumenstock, Robert Mealy, and Heilwig von Königslöw.
