Bridget Kibbey

Lauded for her compelling artistry and virtuosity, harpist Bridget Kibbey is gaining a reputation for showcasing the broad range of her instrument through multiple-genre performances — drawing diverse audiences through new collaborations and platforms. Bridget is a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Classical Recording Foundation’s Young Artist Award, a 2015 Salon de Virtuosi Grant, and the only harpist to win a position with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society II, a winner of Concert Artist Guild’s International Competition, Astral Artist Auditions, and Premiere Prix at the Journées de les Harpes Competition in Arles, France. She tours internationally as concerto soloist, recitalist, and collaborator with some of today’s most compelling artists.

Bridget’s debut album, Love is Come Again, was named one of the Top Ten Releases by Time Out New York. She was most recently featured with tenor Placido Domingo, in a new album entitled Encanto del Mar – released on SONY Records this past year. She may also be heard on Deutsche Grammaphon with soprano Dawn Upshaw, in Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs and Osvaldo Golijov’s Ayre.

Ms. Kibbey’s solo performances have been broadcast on NPR’s Performance Today, on New York’s WQXR and Q2 Radio, WNYC’s Soundcheck, WETA’s Front Row Washington, WRTI’s Crossover, and A&E’s Breakfast with the Arts.

Bridget is featured annually with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, is a principal artist with Camerata Pacifica in California, and has appeared as featured soloist and chamber artist at the Bravo!Vail, Chamber Music Northwest, Bridgehampton, Aspen, Bay Chamber Festivals, Pelotas, Savannah Music Festival, among others.

With a passion for commissioning new repertoire for the harp, Bridget recently spear-headed a five orchestra concerto-commissioning consortium with Juno-Award winning composer Vivian Fung. Bridget performed five world-premiere performances with The Karlsruhe Badische Symphoniker (Germany), The Phillips Camerata in Washington, DC, The Alabama Symphony, The San José Chamber Orchestra, and the Metropolis Ensemble.

This season’s highlights include performances of Ginastera’s Harp Concerto with the Alabama Symphony in honor of the composer’s centennial. She will be featured as soloist with the The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in Alice Tully Hall, in the Lyon and Healy Concert Series, the Ravinia Festival, the Bridgehampton Festival, the Ojai Festival, and with Camerata Pacifica. Bridget will also be featured on Los Angeles’ KCET with the San Francisco Children’s Chorus and in New York City, and with the St. Thomas Boys Choir in New York City. She will perform chamber music and solo recitals across the United States and Germany.

Priscilla Herreid

Priscilla Herreid plays early oboes and recorder with Trinity Baroque Orchestra, The Handel + Haydn Society, The Sebastians, Boston Baroque, and Tempesta di Mare, and has made appearances with Portland Baroque, Philharmonia Baroque, Les Arts Florissants, Venice Baroque, Juilliard Baroque, TENET, New York Baroque Inc., Wiener Akademie, Musica Angelica, and Mr. Jones & the Engines of Destruction. She can also be seen playing renaissance winds with Piffaro, Hesperus, The Waverly Consort, Ex Umbris, The Dark Horse Consort, The City Musick, ARTEK, Cançonièr, The Rose Ensemble, The Bishop’s Band, and The Broken Consort. The New York Times has described her playing as “spirited,” and praised her “soaring recorder, gorgeously played…” Priscilla was part of the onstage band for the 2013-2014 Shakespeare on Broadway productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. She directed the Early Music Ensemble at Temple University for two years, and is on the faculty of the Madison (WI) Early Music Festival, where she has led recorder and alta capella ensembles and a survey of sacred Italian polyphony. For seven years, Priscilla was the soprano at various New York City parishes that celebrate the Latin mass, and still sings occasionally for the mass around NY and CT.

She received her master’s degree from The Juilliard School, where she was a member of the inaugural class of Juilliard Historical Performance and a baroque oboe student of Gonzalo Ruiz. She received her bachelor’s degree from Temple University, where she was a modern oboe student of the late Louis Rosenblatt.

 

Siwoo Kim

Siwoo Kim is an “incisive” and “compelling” (Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times) violinist who plays with “stylistic sensitivity and generous tonal nuance” (John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune). Siwoo performs as soloist and chamber musician and is also the founding co-artistic director of VIVO Music Festival in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

Siwoo made his New York concerto debut at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium with James DePreist and the Juilliard Orchestra. He made his Walt Disney Concert Hall concerto debut shortly after. In addition, he has given concerto performances with the Columbus, Houston, Johannesburg, Kwazulu-Natal, Seongnam, Springfield (MO), and Tulsa symphony orchestras, among others. Siwoo gave the world premiere performance of Samuel Adler’s violin concerto and will be recording the work in Germany this season to coincide with the composer’s 90th anniversary.

An enthusiastic collaborator, Mr. Kim founded Quartet Senza Misura. Praised for their “whip-smart performances” (Alex Ross, The New Yorker), the string quartet has performed at an array of venues such as Alice Tully Hall of Lincoln Center, Terrace Theater of The Kennedy Center, Seoul Arts Center, La Fundacion Juan March in Spain, and the Simon Bolivar Conservatory of Music in Venezuela. In recent seasons, Siwoo has been a violinist of Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect (ACJW) and the Marlboro Music Festival. He has been featured internationally as guest artist at the Tivoli Festival in Denmark, the Bergen International Festival in Norway, the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival in South Africa, and with Ensemble DITTO in South Korea. He has performed chamber music with Itzhak Perlman, Joyce DiDonato, Jeremy Denk, Kim Kashkashian, and members of the Guarneri, Juilliard and Takacs String Quartets.

Siwoo was named the recipient of the 2012 King Award for Young Artists. He took second place at the 2010 Corpus Christi International Competition for Piano and Strings, where he was also awarded special prizes for the best performance of solo Bach and violin performance. He has also been named top prizewinner in the California, Chengdu, Crescendo, Hellam, Ima Hogg, Juilliard, Schadt, Sejong, and WAMSO competitions.

Siwoo studied with Roland and Almita Vamos at the Music Institute of Chicago. He went on to receive both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from The Juilliard School where he studied with Robert MannDonald Weilerstein and Ronald Copes.
