New Violinists!

As we start our season, we’d like to welcome three new symphony members to our 2nd violin section.

Jung Min Shin came to Nashville in 2015 with her husband Kevin Bate who happens to be our Assistant Principal Cellist. They have two daughters at “almost” 3 years and 18 months, so they no doubt keep very busy when not working with the orchestra. Jung Min comes from South Korea and played in the Alabama Symphony before coming to Nashville. She tells us she would not have won the audition if Kevin hadn’t been so supportive. Plus, her parents came all the way from South Korea to help with the kids so she could practice. Way to go Mom and Dad!

Paul Kim comes to Nashville from Cleveland where he attended the Cleveland Institute of Music. Originally from Seattle, Paul enjoys video games and is getting into the “country music thing” in Nashville.

Jimin Lim comes to Nashville from the Chicago Civic Orchestra. She attended Indiana University as well as the Korea National University of the Arts. A native of South Korea, Jimin loves the food in Nashville and is enthusiastic about cooking herself.

We welcome them to our family, and we know their colleagues in the 2nd violin section are certainly glad that there are no longer any vacancies in the section.
