Jennifer Choi | Violin

Since giving her debut recital at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall in NY in 2000, Jennifer has performed in venues like the Library of Congress, Alice Tully Hall, Cité de la Musique in Paris, the RAI National Radio in Rome, RTHK radio in Hong Kong, and is a fixture in NYC performances at LPR, the Stone, and Miller Theater. A prominent chamber musician, Jennifer was former violinist of the Miró String Quartet, ETHEL, and Sirius Quartets.
