Sohyun Park, a highly acclaimed concert pianist, has accumulated more awards in her 21 years than most could hope for in a lifetime.

Born in South Korea, Sohyun moved to the UK at nine, where she began studying the piano. She progressed with stunning speed. By thirteen she had been accepted to Chetham’s School of Music, a prestigious boarding school in Manchester with a reputation of turning out top highly talented musicians.

After graduating, Sohyun was awarded a scholarship to The Royal College of Music, where she not only received a Bachelor of Music degree with Honors, but also a Masters of Music in Performance. While attending the Royal College of Music, Sohyun was named as the Norfolk Young Musician of the Year (2011), qualified as a semi-finalist in the Bromsgrove Festival, earned Distinction in the RCM Concerto Competition two years running, placed as a semi-finalist for the Norah Sande Award, and won the piano prize in the Chappell Medal Competition.

Her winning streak did not end upon graduation. In 2016, Sohyun took first prize in the Oxford Music Festival and in 2017 August, third Prize in the Alion Baltic Music competition.

Despite her numerous awards, Sohyun is not merely a contest winner - she’s a consummate performer. Hailed as “Most impressive,” by the Evening News, her performances are applauded for their emotional breadth and exquisite narrative scope. Sohyun has the ability to pull her audience into the story of music in a way that few other performers can.

This unique connection with her audience in addition to her impressive showing in the festival and competition circuit continues to win Sohyun many loyal fans. She has toured professionally both throughout the UK such as the Royal Albert Hall, St. Lawrence Jury and on international stages such as Turkey, Bulgaria, Norway, Estonia, Germany, Russia, Italy and USA.
