A pianist and cellist, Mr. Shin has studied conducting with David Milnes, John Barnett, Carl St.Clair, and Neal Stulberg, among others.  He has also worked alongside Kurt Masur, James Conlon, Marin Alsop, Gustav Meier, Daniel Lewis, and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski.  In 2006, he received the UC Berkeley’s Alfred Hertz Memorial Traveling Fellowship, which enabled him to be a conducting apprentice at the Deutsches Nationaltheater und Staatskapelle Weimar in Germany under Carl St.Clair.  Mr. Shin holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley, his Masters degree in conducting from the USC Flora L. Thornton School of Music, and currently completing his doctoral studies at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.

Korean-born violinist JI YOUNG AN began her musical training on the piano at the age of 5, switching to violin at the age of 11. At the age of 13, she moved to Paris, France to continue her musical studies. In 2007, Ji Young graduated from the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris where she studied violin with Olivier Charlier, obtaining the conservatory’s first prize and following it up with a year of specializing in chamber music under Marc Coppey. Furthering her studies in the US, Ji Young has received a full scholarship from UCLA for her Master’s and DMA studies, under the tutelage of Guillaume Sutre, and was awarded the Elaine Krown Klein Fine Arts Scholarship, as well as the Mimi Alpert Feldman Scholarship. She has participated in several masterclasses with renowned artists such as Midori Goto, Martin Chalifour, and Renaud Capuçon. Ji Young has been in great demand as a guest artist and lecturer for the afternoon concert series at Pierce College and beginning January 2014, she has been appointed Lecturer of Violin at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, replacing Professor Movses Pogossian during his sabbatical.
