Jenny’s 2024 Winners Tour – The Young Virtuosi

Date: 24 Oct 2024 - 18 Nov 2024

Jenny’s 2024 Winners Tour – The Young Virtuosi

Presented by the Michael Hill International Violin Competition in partnership with Chamber Music New Zealand, the Auckland Philharmonia, Piano+ and the Hill Family Foundation. 

One stage. Two international winners.

The Sydney International Piano Competition and the Michael Hill International Violin Competition are the most prestigious and celebrated international competitions in our region. Both competitions crown winners of outstanding promise and star power. 2023 was an exceptional year for both events, producing two remarkable winners in Jeonghwan Kim (piano) and Yeyeong Jenny Jin (violin).

Jenny will commence her tour with a concerto engagement with the Auckland Philharmonia, before joining with Sydney International Piano Competition winner Jeonghwan Kim and embarking on a 10-venue recital tour across New Zealand and Australia.

The Young Virtuosi tour brings together two virtuosic soloists of bright subtlety and emotional depth in concerts centered on one of the most beloved instrumental combinations in music.


About the Artists:

Having started her violin studies at the age of two, South Korean born Yeyeong Jenny Jin is the winner of many awards including the 2020 Stulberg International String Competition, 2022 Zhuhai International Violin Competition, and most recently, the 2023 Michael Hill International Violin Competition.

At age 9, she was admitted to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia to study with renowned pedagogue Ida Kavafian.

Currently, Jenny is enrolled at the Juilliard School, studying with Itzhak Perlman and Li Lin.

Also from South Korea, 2023 Sydney International Piano Competition winner, Jeonghwan Kim will be joining Jenny on this 10-centre tour.

Winner of a vast array of national competitions, Jeonghwan moved to Berlin at 11 years old, where he continued to earn extensive recognition. Since 2017, he has been studying at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in the class of Professor Konrad Maria Engel.
