The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra has announced the appointment of KYU-YOUNG KIM as senior director of artistic planning. That position has been redefined so that Kim can continue to perform in his role as the SPCO’s principal second violinist. He served as associate concertmaster of the orchestra from 2000 to 2005 and assumed the principal second post in 2011 after a stint in New York, where he was a founding member of the Daedalus Quartet. Kim served on the SPCO musicians’ committee during negotiations for its most recent collective bargaining agreement, as well as for previous negotiated agreements.
