Jung Yoon Cho, Korean-born violinist, is an active recitalist in UK and currently pursuing a PhD under Professor Clive Brown at University of Leeds. Jung Yoon began playing the violin at the age of three and studied at Yewon School and Seoul Arts High School in South Korea. She was a winner of many national violin competitions in South Korea and she made her first concerto début at the age of 11 with the Prime Philharmonic Orchestra, performing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4, in the main concert hall of Sejong Arts centre in South Korea. In 2004, Jung Yoon came to London to continue her studies at the Royal Academy of Music under Professor Tomotada Soh, where she completed her Bachelor of Music (2009) and Master of Music (2011) degrees under a scholarship. While she was studying at Royal Academy of Music, she received numerous prizes and awards including Robert Rendell Scholarship, Sir Cooper Prize Commend, Picker Trust Award, Southdown Trust Award and Foundation Award. Jung Yoon has performed as a soloist in various venues including St James Piccadilly, Bristol Cathedral, St. Olave, and St Dunstan in-the-west, as well as festivals in France and Hungary. She is also enjoying her active performing career as a chamber and orchestral musician, and currently based in London. She has also taken over as director of the Anglo-Japanese Society of Wessex’s Chamber Music Ensemble.

Emeline Archambault is a young pianist who performs regularly as a soloist, but who is also passionate about collaborations with both instrumentalists and singers, performing in various formations a wide repertoire.

She gave public performances in London (Depford Town Hall, Southside House’s Musical Season, The Chamber Music Season of St Peter’s, St Olave’s Church) as well as as in the rest of England (in Bristol Cathedral or at the Aldeburgh Festival for the Britten-Pears Artist Programme). Emeline has also performed abroad, in New York (Dillon Gallery), in France (Suresnes Theatre, Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris, Théâtre de Bougival, Festival de Ouessant, Rencontres Musicales “Les Hôtels Particuliers”, Les Petites Saisons de la Roquette), in Spain (Palau de la Musica Catalana of Barcelona, Auditorium Joaquim of Valencia) or in Italy (Alexander Girardi Hall of Cortina d’Ampezzo). She has also won the 2nd prize at the Harold Craxton competition in London.

Emeline started her piano studies under the tutelage of Florence Millet (Cologne Hochschule) and pursued her musical training since then in different institutions such as Boulogne-Billancourt Conservatoire and Rueil-Malmaison Conservatoire (Denis Pascal’s piano class and Michel Moraguès’ chamber music class), where she unanimously achieved piano, chamber music, aural and analysis prizes.

Interested in other views of music, she then decided to continue her studies in London, where she achieved a Bachelor of Music with Honours (Guildhall School of Music and Drama, in Martin Roscoe’s class), followed by a Masters degree at the Royal Academy of Music, under Carole Presland. She is now taking part in the Masters in Pedagogy at the Haute Ecole de Musique of Geneva, in the class of Dominique Weber. Emeline has, alongside to her studies, regularly worked with great personalities such as Maria João Pires, Ferenc Rados, Claudio Martinez- Mehner, Pascal Devoyon, Jean-Claude Pennetier or Hortense Cartier-Bresson. She is now carrying out a musical/poetic project centered on the 19th century Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé, reflecting her passion for the different forms of art, and her taste to make them encounter.
