Jasmine Choi, who won the 2003 Korean Concert Society audition for a debut recital at the Kennedy Center, announced that she has won the audition for Principle Flute of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. Her appointment in Austria begins in the 2012-2013 season.
The Vienna appointment is the next step in Choi’s already distinguished career as an orchestra musician. In 2007, at the age of 22, she was appointed Associate Principal Flute of the Cincinnati Symphony (CSO) under the music director Paavo Jarvi and became the first Korean woodwind player to hold a post with a major orchestra in the United States. She remained with the CSO until May 2012 before taking up her new post.
Korean Concert Society congratulates Jasmine and wishes her the best of luck in Vienna.
