Praised for his exceptional musicianship and depth of expression, flutist Sunghyun Cho is recognized as one of the leading artists of his generation. He is a prizewinner of numerous international competitions, including the International Flute Competition “Kobe,” “Friedrich Kuhlau,” Beijing International Music Competition, British Flute Society Young Artist Competition, Gheorge Dima International Music Competition and Jeunesses International Music Competition in Bucharest. His recent triumph at the International Flute Competition “Severino Gazzelloni” has led to engagements at the Emilia Romagna Festival, Falaut Festival, Agimus Festival and Slovenian Flute Festival. He was also awarded the Special Prize for the best performance of Luciano Berio’s Sequenza.

Born in 1990 in Seoul, Cho was enrolled at the preparatory division of the Korea National University of Arts before making his debut recital for the Kumho Prodigy Concert Series at age 12. That year, he also appeared as soloist with the Vladivostok Broadcasting Symphonic Orchestra. He has subsequently won several national competitions such as Ewha & Kyunghyang Competition and Korea Flute Association Competition. In 2005, he moved to the United States to commence his studies with Michel Debost at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where he was a full-scholarship recipient.

While earning his Bachelor’s degree at Oberlin, Cho continued to succeed in competitions as well as on the concert stage; he gathered prizes at the 13th Flute Convention in Tokyo, Ohio State Flute Association, Dong-A Music Competition and Asia Flutists Federation Competition while also performing at such prestigious venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Broadcasted on the radio, his appearance for “Performance Today” at the Kennedy Center was hailed by critics as a performance that “enchanted the audience.”

After graduating from Oberlin, Cho entered the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover in Germany for a postgraduate degree. Meanwhile, his concert activities continued to flourish as ever; in addition to making regular appearances at the Kumho Concert Series, Cho performed with the Korean Symphony Orchestra and Bucheon Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2012, he gave a solo recital for the Yamaha Korea Rising Artist Series and was afterwards chosen as the first Yamaha Music Korea Scholarship holder. He was also showcased by the British Flute Society Convention as part of the Competition Winners’ Showcase.

Sunghyun Cho is currently pursuing the Master’s degree at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich with Andrea Lieberknecht.
