Biography

After studying music since her early childhood in Korea, Mi-kyung Kim discovers her vocation for lyric singing during her teenage years. She stops playing the piano in order to dedicate herself to her new passion. She enters Kyunghee University Music College in Seoul and 4 years later graduates in classical vocal singing. After 2 more years she obtains her Masters Degree and becomes singing teacher for adult choirs, teenagers and young children.

In 1997 Mi-kyung Kim flies to Germany to pursue an advanced degree as opera soloist. Rather than into the prestigious Berlin Musikhochschule, whose entrance examination she passes successfully, she decides to enter into the quieter but equally renowned Dresden Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber. She studies under the direction of baritone Jürgen Hartfiel from Dresden Semper Opera House. She partakes in several master classes with Brigitte Fassbender, Walter Berry, Sir Colin Davis… During this period of intense musical activity, whether for studies or for stage performances, she gives numerous concerts in local churches and theaters. She performs twice the role of Lauretta in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi in Meißen Theater with conductor Jörg-Peter Wiegle. And shortly after a memorable graduation concert in February 2000, she sings solo and duo arias from The Marriage of Figaro during a Mozart concert in the marvellous Semper Opera House, accompanied by the Symphonic Orchestra of the Hochschule für Musik conducted by the famous conductor Sir Colin Davis.
