We are pleased to introduce Eun Sun Kim, the first woman to hold the music director post at an American company of major size and stature. Born in South Korea, Eun Sun Kim was a prominent conductor at major opera houses across Europe before gaining recognition in North America as an insightful interpreter of the operatic and symphonic repertoire.

Maestro Kim shared her journey to one of America’s most prominent opera companies in a special fireside chat with moderator and CKA member Travis Cross (UCLA Professor of Music) on Thursday, May 5th.

A special thank you to our community partners Chinese American Citizens Alliance, United Chinese Americans, and Chinese American Heritage Foundation for their ongoing support and participation.
