The second concert of the Blue Hill Concert Association 2023 season features Yu & I, a violin and guitar duo. Violinist, YuEun Kim, who came to the United States from South Korea, and guitarist, Ines Thomé, who comes from Germany, met as housemates while both studying at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California. YuEun has been to Blue Hill several times already, having played as part of the orchestra for the Blue Hill Bach summer festivals. YuEun and Ines have a special passion for sharing their music with children, and just released their first album, “A Journey with Yu & I,” highlighting folk music from around the world.
The two videos linked below will give you a taste of their music. The first showcases a selection of Romanian Folk dances from Béla Bartók. The second video records a performance by Yu & I of Bordel 1900 by Astor Piazzolla. We invite you to join us for the performance by Yu & I at the Blue HIll Congregational Church on February 12, 2023, at 3:00 pm.
