Meet Jasmine Choi, “One of the best flutists in history” (Sifini Maganzin, 2015)
Praised by the Korea Times as "The goddess of flute", Jasmine Choi is one of the most celebrated flutists of our generation. She has been critically acclaimed on international stages for her rich tone, technical brilliance, superb musicianship, and charismatic stage presence since an early age.
Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1983, Miss Choi began her musical studies on the violin and piano at an early age. She began playing the flute at the age of nine and moved to the United States at the age of 16 when she was accepted to study with renowned flutists Julius Baker and Jeffrey Khaner at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. She holds a “Bachelor of Music” from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and a “Master of Music” from Juilliard School in New York.
After having served as principal flute of the Vienna Symphony and associate principal flute of the Cincinnati Symphony, Miss Choi has now taken off with a career of a full-time soloist. Recent performances include solo recitals at Wigmore Hall in London, Konzerthaus Schubert Saal in Vienna, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, and Kumho Art Hall in Seoul.
Nominated by the Symphony magazine as one of “America’s Emerging Artists”, Miss Choi was the winner of major music competitions and even played at the official inauguration ceremony of the current Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon in New York.
