Chung Park

Chung Park is quickly establishing himself amongst the finest of the next generation of American conductors. Eminent composer Steve Reich described his conducting as "revelatory" and called him "a young conductor to keep an ear and eye on". Critic Lawrence Johnson of the Miami Herald hailed his recent performance of Stravinsky's Soldier's Tale as "masterfully directed" and his conducting of Debussy's Afternoon of a Faun as "lucid and refined".
Chung currently serves as Music Director of the Idaho State Civic Symphony in Pocatello, Idaho and Assistant Professor of Upper Strings at Idaho State University. He is also Music Director and Conductor of Project Copernicus, a large chamber ensemble dedicated to performing music by living composers that has received wide critical acclaim.
