Following her debut concert performing Rachmaninov second piano concerto with the Seoul Philharmonic at the age of 16, Yoojin Oh has toured throughout Europe, America and her native Korea.

Hailed by the press as “adroit and technically accomplished”, “a real talent, expressing music with simplicity and conviction,” Ms. Oh was featured as a guest soloist with Manhattan Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Bronx, University of Alaska Sinfonia Orchestra, New York Sinfonietta, Seoul Philharmonic, Inchon philharmonic, and the Jeunesse Ensemble Orchestra. She has also appeared at major venues such as Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Symphony Space, Yamaha Concert Salon, Sejong Cultural Center (Korea), Hoahm Art Hall (Korea), and Olivier Messiaen Hall (France). 

Ms. Oh’s performances were broadcast live for Bronxnet Television, TV36-Communities on Cable (NJ) and WXXI Radio (Rochester, NY) and her frequent chamber music collaborations have received acclaimed reviews such as “exquisitely rewarding rarity, a model of clarity” (the Anchorage Daily News), “well-polished, a performance of exceptional blending and dovetailing, striking for its unity” (New York Concert Review).

She premiered standing composers such as Toshi Ichiyanagi, Samuel Adler, Elias Tanenbaum, Nils Vigeland, Richard Sussman, Geon Yong Lee, and Eun Kyung Kim.
