PRAISED FOR HER DEEP MUSICIANSHIP, EFFORTLESS TECHNIQUE, AND STRUCTURALLY SOUND INTERPRETATIONS, CELLIST ANGELA PARK IS ESTABLISHING HERSELF AS A COMPELLING MUSICIAN OF HER GENERATION.

"DEFT AND SOPHISTICATED"
-BOSTON GLOBE

Equally at home as a soloist and chamber musician, Angela Park has performed throughout the North and South Americas, Europe, and East Asia. Notable appearances are solo concerts with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Seoul Philharmonic, and chamber music appearances at the Marlboro, Verbier, and Ravinia Festivals.

In recent seasons, Angela has performed with Helsinki Baroque, Anne-­Sophie Mutter on her Virtuosi European Tour, Incheon Philharmonic, and has returned to the Marlboro Music Festival, Prussia Cove Open Chamber Music, and Festival de los Siete Lagos in Argentina. She has been awarded the Silver Medal and Seong­Yawng Park Talent Award at the International Isang Yun Competition, in addition to prizes at the Stulberg International Competition and the Young Tchaikovsky Competition. She has worked with the most inspiring chamber music colleagues including Leonidas Kavakos, Miriam Fried, Peter Wiley, Bruno Canino, Kim Kashkashian, and Richard Goode, and has also performed the concerto repertoire with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic, KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) Orchestra, and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra.

Angela is increasingly in demand as a baroque cellist. She performs the early music repertoire including the Bach Suites on a baroque cello, and has taken the continuo role at the Pyeongchang Music Festival with Helsinki Baroque, as well as for the Gamut Bach Ensemble Philadelphia. In addition to performing early music, she has a deep interest in the music of our times and is dedicated to playing the works of living composers, taking part in dozens of world premieres.

Born in 1987 in California to Korean parents, Angela started playing the cello at age 10 with Sungeun Hong and Kyungmi Lim. Performing from an early age soon thereafter, Angela won virtually every competition in Korea and made her debut with the Seoul Philharmonic at the age of 12. At age 14, she started her studies at the renowned Curtis Institute of Music with Peter Wiley and the late Orlando Cole. There started her long relationship and love for the chamber music literature while working with luminaries such as Steven Tenenbom, Pamela Frank, Joseph Silverstein, and Meng­Chieh Liu. While at Curtis, she made her debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Christoph Eschenbach.

Upon graduation, Angela studied with Laurence Lesser at the New England Conservatory, and with Jens Peter Maintz at the Universität der Künste Berlin in the Konzertexamen Program, where she was a DAAD Scholar (German Academic Exchange), graduating with highest distinction in 2013.

Angela plays a Jean­Baptiste Vuillaume cello and a 19th century Flemish baroque cello, both generously on private loan.

She currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
