Kim was awarded with the Sterling Achievement Award from the professional music fraternity Mu Phi Epsilon in 2008. He has played at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and Merkin Concert Hall, as well as other prestigious venues.
The Pearl Bogart Mann Memorial Piano Recital is a series of annual recitals partially funded through an endowment in memory of Pearl Bogart Mann. Mann taught applied piano for 48 years at Bluffton, and her tenure is the longest for any faculty member at Bluffton University.
