Eastern’s Okon Hwang Performs at Carnegie Hall

Eastern Connecticut State University Music Professor Okon Hwang performed at Carnegie Hall this past June with the S.O.Y. Piano Trio. The trio’s debut performance at the famed venue was in celebration of their first-place performance at the 2018 American Protégé International Competition. The trio competed in the College Students and Professional Musicians category for the Piano and Strings Competition.

Consisting of Seulye Park (violin), Okon Hwang (piano) and Yun-Yang Lin (cello), the S.O.Y. Piano Trio is a chamber ensemble based in the United States and South Korea. Since its formation in 2015, the trio has blended master works with newer works in experimental multi-media settings. As part of their 2018-19 season, the trio is invited to perform at the Sejong Cultural Center, one of the most prestigious performance venues in South Korea.
