Sam Seyong CHUNG

I’m Sam Chung from Vancouver, Canada. Currently I’m in 11th grade, attending to Magee Secondary School. I’ve been playing cello since the 1st grade. My current teacher is Sung Yong Lim from Borealis quartet. My favorite repertoire would be Shostakovich cello concerto no.1, because it was my motivation to start playing cello. Daniil Shafran playing Dvorak cello concerto would be my favorite performanc, althouhg my favorite recording of Dvorak concerto would be by Truls Mork. I’ve competed in Vancouver kiwanis music festivals, Canadian Music Competition and VYSO concerto competition. To me, music is a powerful thing. It evokes feelings and has the power to bring people together. Music is also a way for people to express their ideas or thoughts
