Jaehyuck Choi (b. 1994, Seoul)
South Korean composer/conductor Jaehyuck Choi, a graduate of The Juilliard School and the 1st prize winner of the 72nd Concours de Genève, quickly distinguished himself as one of Korea’s most prominent young artists.

As he continues to pursue his profession in conducting as well, he had been invited to IRCAM conducting master class and Royaumont conducting master class to study with Péter Eötvös.
