About Chee-Yun’s Violin

“This is a talented instrumentalist, with the kind of high-gloss tone that pulls sensuously at the listener’s ear.” -New York Times

Born in Seoul, violinist Chee-Yun first public performance at age eight took place in her native South Korea after she won the Grand Prize of the Korean Times Competition. At 13, she came to the United States and was invited to perform with the New York Philharmonic.  In 1989, she won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and a year later she became the recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. Chee-Yun has performed with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and released multiple CDs and performed on television and radio. Full bio

Chee-Yun owns a Francesco Ruggieri violin made in the year 1669 which she purchased during the early years of her career. Her violin is speculated to have been buried underground for nearly two hundred years with its previous owner in Norway. Click here to read the Washington Post Article
