The Village Concert Series presents a free public concert by Korean-born pianist Ji, winner of the 2012 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a gifted young pianist who is clearly going places,” Ji has been praised for his compelling musical presence and impressive technical command. Well-known in his native Korea, Ji was launched to fame when he became the youngest pianist to win the New York Philharmonic’s Young Artists Competition at age ten. Since that time, he has performed with symphony orchestras around the world, and received a number of high-profile awards.
