My name is Solomon Kim. Raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Tokyo, Japan, I’m now an undergrad at Emory University majoring in Music Composition and Economics.
I am interested in exploring the intersection between modern electronic production techniques and the sound of an acoustic ensemble through my musical work. I have written for ensembles ranging from small chamber groups to an 80-person choir. My work has been performed by the American School in Japan Combined Choir and Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and students at the Heifetz International Music Institute.
As a developing arts administrator, I work to advance music in the public sphere. I am the founder of Emory Composers’ Society, an organization working to advance the discussion and creation of new music, both classical and popular, on Emory’s campus. I was also a Summer 2021 Administrative Intern with the Heifetz International Music Institute.
