A Coquitlam violinist is one of two winners of this year’s Michael Measures Prize, an award from the Canada Council for the Arts that recognizes young Canadians performing classical music.
Alison Kim clinched the $15,000 accolade that is presented to musicians enrolled in the summer training program of the National Youth Orchestra Canada.
Kim is an music undergraduate at the New England Conservatory in Boston, studying under Ayano Ninomiya. Previously, she worked with Kristopher Tong of the Borromeo string quartet.
Kim will be honoured at Koerner Hall in Toronto on July 29 as part of the orchestra’s TD Odyssey Tour.
