Kumho-supported violinist wins international prize


Park Sam-koo

Kumho Asiana Group Chairman Park Sam-koo congratulated Korean violinist Lim Ji-young, who won the 2015 International Queen Elisabeth Music Competition, and promised to support her during an event Tuesday at the Lotte Hotel in Sogong-dong, central Seoul, on Tuesday.

Lim, a student at the Korea National University of Arts in Seoul, became the first Korean violinist to win the highest honor at the competition without any overseas instruction. Lim has been supported by the group as a beneficiary of Kumho Instrument Bank since 2014.

Park awarded Lim an Asiana Airlines sponsorship to support her music career. Lim is now able to use Asiana Airlines business class for her music performances for free for a year.

Lim is set to perform in the Kumho Musical Instruments Series held at the Kumho Art Hall in Jongno district, central Seoul, at 8 p.m. on Aug. 13.
