B i o g r a p h y
Michelle Park, Founder and Music Director of Hansori Music has been performing and directing solo and ensemble concerts since 2003, and annually at the Sydney Opera House since 2013. Michelle Park's numerous professional performances as concert pianist has taken her to Austria, Bulgaria, Germany and more. Being a South-Korean-born artist, Michelle was ranked champion in countless prestigious domestic piano competitions as a child while studying with Professor Kim Eun-Jeong (Hanyang University) and was accepted to study a Bachelor of Music Piano Performance at the Juilliard School (New York). She specialised the piano under Professor Slobodan Zivkovic （pupil of Guido) at the Australian International Conservatorium of Music, Professor Nikolai Evrov at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (Sydney University), and completed the Master of Performance at the Folkwang University of Arts in Germany under Michael Roll.
Her passion for teaching AMEB Piano and Cello has become the prologue of her current vision to support and empower young musicians, who have as a result achieved exemplary results in the AMEB, gained secondary private school and local community scholarships, entry to pursue higher musical studies around the world, as well as prizes in both domestic and international piano competitions every year including the Sydney Eisteddfod.
Hansori Music aims to support and seek musicians of all age to live their passions for performance on stage. Our biannual concert projects have taken us to Sydney Opera House, and Charity functions at the Westmead Children's hospital and Royal North Shore Hospital. Our Hansori string ensemble members, solo guest performers and pupils of Michelle Park have also participated in worldwide events such as the One Month Festival (July) 2015-2016, La Pianista International Piano Competition (2018) and more.
