About the Artists
The award-winning Shea-Kim Duo was formed in 2014 by the husband and wife team of violinist Brendan Shea and pianist Yerin Kim. Subsequently, they have competed internationally and toured the world, performing in Belgium, Italy, South Korea, Canada, and the United States.
The Shea-Kim Duo’s awards include a Gold Medal from the Manhattan International Music Competition and the Ackerman Chamber Music Award, while their performances have been broadcast on Klara Continuo (Belgium), PBC (South Korea), and WUFT (USA). The artists have released two highly acclaimed CDs on the Blue Griffin Recording label: The Sound and the Fury, including music from Dvorák, Grieg, and Janácek, and All Roads, featuring works by Beethoven, Schnittke, Schumann, and Beach.
Actively involved in promoting chamber music to a broader community and audience, the Shea-Kim Duo regularly presents sensory-friendly concerts that provide high-quality chamber music for individuals and families with autism. The Duo also regularly appears at several notable music festivals, including those of Anchorage, Annapolis, and Harborfront, and are the founders and artistic directors of Washington’s Chamber Music in the Bend.
