Christopher Park

Born of German-Korean parents in Bamberg in 1987, Christopher Park was admitted as a junior student at the age of 12 to the Saar University of Music. In the course of his studies he was influenced by two major musical traditions, thanks to the teaching of Lev Natochenny and Joachim Volkmann. In 2014, the jury of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Foundation presented him with the Leonard Bernstein Award. Park has made solo appearances with a number of German orchestras including the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra (Heilbronn), and the radio symphony orchestras of NDR broadcasting (Hamburg) and HR (Frankfurt), col- laborating with conductors of the likes of Christoph Eschenbach, Paavo Järvi, Sebastian Weigle, Ion Marin and Paul Daniel. He has performed in Europe, China, South Africa, South Korea and the US, appearing at the international music festivals of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheingau, Schleswig-Holstein, San Sebastian and Burgos. Christopher Park gave his first Ruhr Piano Festival solo recital in 2016.
