Faculty Spotlight

Fall 2014
Kyunghun Kim joins the Music Faculty as Director of Lehman's NEW Community Orchestra

The Music Department's newest ensemble - the Lehman College and Community Orchestra - will be directed by Professor Kyunghun Kim, Music's newest faculty member. Mr. Kim, a graduate of both the Curtis Institute and Juilliard, directs several orchestral ensembles in the New York area, and is an active chamber musician. He will lead the Music Department's burgeoning string program, which will include the new symphonic orchestra.

The Orchestra will perform a wide range of literature, from chamber works to full symphonies, from Baroque to contemporary. As with all of the Music Department's major ensembles, the Lehman College and Community Orchestra will be open to students, alumni, faculty/staff, and community members. Rehearsals will be Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:30pm.

Lehman students may earn academic credit by enrolling in MSP 204: Orchestra. Mr. Kim encourages string players in particular to participate.
