Koh studied with Donald Weilerstein while earning her Master of Music and Graduate Diploma at NEC.
“We are happy to welcome to our orchestra the wonderful violinist Eunae Koh,” said Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra Co-concertmaster Ruggero Allifranchini. “She will add virtuosity, musical energy, and depth to our violin section.”
Koh gives credit to Donald Weilerstein, one of her mentors and collaborators, whom she met at the New England Conservatory when she first started exploring chamber music. “He changed the way of my performing and how I see the music. In Korea, I had built up fundamental techniques, but it was in the U.S. where I learned how to play together with others. I learned it’s not so much about my playing; it’s more about the music — that there needs to be less distance, so to speak, between the performance and the audience.”
