Biography

Ji Woo Yoon is a Korean/Australian cellist with a growing number of accolades for her music-making both in Australia and internationally. In 2020 she graduated with the top mark in Cello Performance from the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School in Melbourne, studying under Josephine Vains. Her many competition successes in Australia and overseas include; overall winner of the strings category in the 2020 Valsesia Juniores Musica Competition (Italy), 1st prize in the Melbourne Youth Orchestra Virtuosity Competition performing Dvorak Cello Concerto and a special prize in the J.S. Bach and Great Romantics Competition, both run by the Melbourne Recital Centre. Other prizes from numerous competitions in Australia include from the Musical Society of Victoria, Vera Bradford Concerto Competition and as a finalist in the Australian National Youth Concerto Competition performing with the Queensland Youth Orchestra in 2019. In 2017 she received her Licentiate Diploma in Music from the Australian Music Examinations Board with highest grade of Distinction and was invited to launch the Centenary Celebration, a high honour.

Ji Woo has an affinity with repertoire of different epochs - revelling in both the music of J.S. Bach and contemporary works by Penderecki, Kodaly and renowned Australian composers.

As an orchestral musician Ji Woo was 1 of 12 Australian cellists chosen for the prestigious Australian Youth Orchestra Seasons 2021, and has performed as Principal Cellist with the VCASS Orchestra at Melbourne Recital Centre. She has broadcast on 3MBS radio for 'The Talent' and as a chamber musician received prizes for her cello quartet Cellolujah with the commissioning and World Premiere performance of Miro Lauritz 'L'Ondes', streamed nationally to acclaim. Ji Woo has thoroughly enjoyed masterclasses with Professors Tilmann Wick, Umberto Clerici, Wen Sinn Yang, Howard Penny and Edith Salzmann.

Ji Woo genuinely loves interacting with other musicians with the same passion and finds it thrilling to share her own ideas and interpretations with other artists and the audience when on stage. She gains a great deal from listening to and playing with others which she experienced through her busy life at an arts school and masterclasses, especially in Germany.
