Solo Artist, Peabody Conservatory, The Percussion Collective

As an advocate for today’s modern solo percussion art, Ji Su Jung has a distinctive voice instantly recognizable for its lyricism and insight. Her breadth of skill carries her with equal ease from the solo marimba medium to multiple percussion solos and European theatrical works. She has been a laureate in numerous competitions around the world, including Ima Hogg Competition, Linz International Marimba Competition and was a resident artist with NPR in 2015.
