Performing with the ICCSO for the love of music

Recently, my wife, Miera Kim, and I had a very big decision to make regarding our professional lives. The board of Red Cedar Chamber Music offered us the positions of executive director, artistic director and core ensemble. We chose to accept Red Cedar’s proposal to take over the nonprofit in July 2016. After more than two decades of making our livings working for a baker’s dozen of employers as independent artist-teachers, we had to make some hard choices. To make room in our lives for full-time employment, we would have to give up many of the wonderful associations that have made our professional lives so rewarding for the last 20 years.
