We are delighted to welcome Jihoon Kim for this morning’s
masterclass with three of Opera Prelude’s newest intake of Young Artists.
Jihoon Kim is shining proof that the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at
the Royal Opera House develops singers into complete artists and his rich,
resonant bass is much admired at home and on the international stage.  It will
be such an inspiration for our Young Artists to be coached by him during the
course of the morning and to hear more about his performance career.

Jihoon Kim is a South Korean operatic bass and a
Principal of The Royal Opera in the United Kingdom. He was a member of the
Jette Parker Young Artists Programme 2011–13 and a Jette Parker Principal in
the 2013/14 Season, appointed to his current position with The Royal Opera at
the start of the 2014/15 Season. Kim has performed widely in concert and
recitals throughout South Korea and Europe. He has sung in Verdi's Requiem on
tour in France with the Learning and Participation department of the Royal
Opera House and organized and performed in a concert of Korean music in the
Paul Hamlyn Hall.

In addition to his international and successful career as a
singer, Jihoon Kim is a countryman at heart! He lives on a farm in Sussex where
he has been passionately engaged in creating a new carefully designed and
colour schemed garden. He loves all beautiful animals and has very recently
formed a partnership with Dame Josephine Barstow to re-launch and run her
business of breeding Egyptian Arabian horses.

Opera Prelude is a small charity supporting young
professional opera singers who give lecture recitals in London. These friendly
and inclusive events will introduce you to the international opera singers of
the future by way of recitals, concerts and masterclasses.
