Jung-eun Kim and Patrick Galvin Duo

Jung-eun Kim and Patrick Galvin have been performing together since 2015 when they met while studying at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Since then they have performed repertoire from every period of classical music, and in 2019 the pair premiered a work they commissioned from composer Stefan Cwik, titled American Troubadours. They took this piece and others on tour, with a live performance at NPR’s Hawaii station, HPR. This performance was broadcast in the Spring of 2020 on the program “Applause in a Small Room.”

In the 2019-2020 season, the duo will be performing American Troubadours as well as music by Grieg, Gershwin, Schumann, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and others. In the Spring of 2020, Jung-eun and Patrick will perform multiple programs featuring the music of Beethoven in honor of his 250th birthday, including a series of concerts at SunsetArts in San Francisco.
