Bio

Solomon Kim is a composer and student at Emory University based in Atlanta, GA. His music is grounded in minimalist processes, contrapuntal figures, and inspirations from his background as a music producer.

His choral and chamber music has been performed in Japan and the United States, with premieres by the American School in Japan choirs, students at the Heifetz International Music Institute, and Emory University. Forthcoming works include a piece for wind octet set to premiere in April 2022 by the Emory Wind Ensemble and a devised musical with Theater Emory exploring American folk music.

Solomon is currently studying composition with Dr. Katherine Young and Dr. Adam Mirza at Emory University. He is also the founder of the Emory Composers’ Society, an organization working to encourage the creation of new music both in the Emory community and in Atlanta at large.
