Born in Seoul in 1989, Soo-Hyun Park began playing the violin at the age of seven. From 1999 she attended Dora Schwarzberg’s masterclasses at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, where she was also taught by Lucia Hall and Anna Kandinskaia. In the course of her studies she met Tamara Atschba, which led to a productive artistic collaboration.
