This evening we present a rebroadcast of a program that first aired in December, 2011.

A senior at James B. Conant High School in Hoffman Estates, Wonjin Hahn is a scholarship recipient and member of the Music Institute of Chicago’s Academy program where he studies piano with MIC artist faculty member Alan Chow. Wonjin has studied in the United States, South Korea, and China during his eleven years as a pianist. His principle teacher during those years was Dr. Haysun Kang at Loyola University Chicago.  In 2011, Wonjin was a winner in the Steinway Young Artists Competition, and he won Second Place in the Music Festival in Honor of Confucius Competition. That same year, he performed with his piano quintet as part of the Gail Borden Library Concert Series in Elgin, Illinois. He attended the Bienen School of Music’s summer pre-collegiate program in 2009, and the summer International Institute for Young Musicians in 2011. Wonjin’s various musical activities have included accompanying choirs and singers, playing in a jazz combo, playing clarinet, and singing in the chamber choir at his high school.

In our interview, Wonjin mentioned his interest in composing pop and rap music and recommends that those interested in learning more about rap begin with Eminem and Twista.
