Critically acclaimed violinist Jinjoo Cho has established herself as one of the most vibrant, engaging and charismatic violinists of her generation. Gold medalist of the 2014 Ninth Quadrennial International Violin Competition, she made her first appearance on the international music scene when she garnered first grant prize at the 2006 Montreal International Musical Competition at age 17. Cho has concertized in North and South America, Asia and Europe, appearing as a soloist with many orchestras, including The Cleveland Orchestra. Born in Seoul, Korea, Cho moved to Cleveland at age 14 to study at the Cleveland Institute of Music as a Young Artist Program student. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree both at the Curtis School of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music.
