JIJI - Guitar
- Concert, July 24, Meet the Artist, July 23, 2018

Applauded by the Calgary Herald as "…talented, sensitive…brilliant," and The Kansas City Star as "A graceful and nuanced player," who "presents an intimate, captivating performance" Jiji is an adventurous artist on both acoustic and electric guitar, playing an extensive range of music from traditional and contemporary classical music to free improvisation. Her impeccable musicianship combined with compelling stage presence and fascinating repertoire earned the Korean guitarist First Prize at the 2016 Concert Artists Guild International Competition.

Recent performance highlights include a wide array of venues, including: Carnegie Hall, National Sawdust, Miller theater, Mass MOCA, Subculture NYC, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Princeton Sound Kitchen, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her recent tour in Hong Kong consisted of performances collaborating with a performance Artist, a traditional Chinese instrument ensemble, and an Erhu player in art galleries, clubs, and even on a moving trolley.

Currently sponsored by D'Addario Strings. Jiji's performances have been featured on PBS (On Stage at Curtis series), NPR's From the Top, WHYY-TV, FOX 4-TV, Munchies (the Vice Channel), The Not So Late Show (Channel 6, Kansas), and Hong Kong broadcast station RTHK's The Works.
