Samantha Harrison, soprano, is a graduate of Boston University where she received her Master’s in Historical Performance. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from CSU Stanislaus. Along with studying and performing opera, Ms. Harrison has a passion for choral and chamber music. She has performed with the CSU Stanislaus Chamber Singers and Concert Chorale, and the Early Music Chamber groups and Graduate Vocal Ensemble of Boston University. As an avid recitalist, Ms. Harrison performs collaborative recitals regularly throughout California.
Arunima Kohli, soprano, is thrilled to be returning for her third season with Vox Musica. She has been singing as long as she can remember, both in solo performances and in choirs. Her love for choral music sparked during her high school years at Palo Alto High School, and continued through her undergraduate and medical school career at Stanford University, where she sang and toured with the Stanford Chamber Chorale for seven years. She also studied voice with Amy Schneider and Wendy Hillhouse, presenting five vocal recitals, and was heavily involved with the Stanford Light Opera Company (formerly the Stanford Savoyards). She is one of the founding members of the Bay Area’s Convivium Choir, under the direction of Eric Tuan.
Shinae Kim, pianist, performs frequently across the United States and internationally. She commands a wide-ranging solo repertoire, placing special emphasis on masterpieces of the Austro-Germanic tradition. Spanning the Baroque to the present day, it includes both volumes of J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, the complete Beethoven sonatas, and the Schoenberg Piano Concerto.
Ms. Kim holds a Bachelor of Music degree from The Boston Conservatory, a Master’s in Music Education from New York University, and most recently completed the doctoral program at Stony Brook University. She also attended the Franz-Schubert-Institut in Baden bei Wien, Austria, where she studied Lieder intensively with some of the world’s leading experts, including Elly Ameling and Helmut Deutsch.
In 2017, Ms. Kim founded the non-profit organization An die Musik NYC and serves as its artistic director. AdM NYC is a concert series bringing the people of New York City high-quality classical music at affordable prices. It presents internationally renowned performers alongside rising talents from the NYC community.
