Bokyung Park and Ji-Young Kim

Oh, to be young, beautiful, talented and finished with a doctoral degree!  This is the happy combination Ji-Young Kim and Bokyung Park will bring along with their duo-piano artistry to the Arizona Senior Academy Great Room at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday (Jan. 20).

Their program will include “Sonoto for Four hands in B flat major” by Mozart,  Fauré’s “Dolly for Four Hands,” “Fantasy in f minor” by Franz Schubert and “Libertango” by Piazzolla.

Also a native of South Korean, Bokyung Park holds bachelor and master’s degrees from Korean universities as well as an MM from ASU and a DMA from UA, also with Tannis Gibson.  She is currently Visiting Professor of Music at the Dong-A University and the Kosin University in Korea.
