Michael Jinsoo Lim

Praised by Gramophone for playing with “delicious abandon,” and described as “bewitching” by the Seattle Times, violinist Michael Jinsoo Lim enjoys a dynamic musical career as concertmaster, soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and teacher. Recently named concertmaster of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra, Lim is also widely known for his work as co-founder of the renowned Corigliano Quartet. In demand as a chamber musician and as a performer of new and experimental music, he is a member of Open End, a New York City-based ensemble specializing in contemporary music and improvisation.

Lim has recorded for Naxos, DreamWorks, Albany Records, CRI, Bayer Records, and Aguava New Music, and appears on numerous television and film soundtracks, including the Oscar-winning score to Brokeback Mountain. Lim received his formal training at Indiana University, where he was a pupil of the legendary violinist and teacher Josef Gingold, and at the Juilliard School, where he taught and studied chamber music as an assistant to the Juilliard String Quartet. He currently serves on the faculty of Cornish College of the Arts, where he teaches violin and chamber music.
