Eun Sun Kim Named Houston Grand Opera’s Principal Guest Conductor

The Houston Grand Opera has named Eun Sun Kim the first principal guest conductor in 25 years.

In a press release the company noted, “Eun Sun Kim seems to me a limitless talent at the outset of an important career as her music-making is elegant, effortless, precise, and deep. Her incredible facility with languages and ability to communicate with singers, both supporting and challenging them, are all-too-rare qualities in a conductor. Having been the music director of HGO for a long time now, I am excited to welcome her fresh ear and new musical ideas, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with her.”

This season Eun Sun Kim made her Houston Grand Opera debut and also made debuts at the Bayerische Staatsoper Munich and Opernhaus Zürich. She will conduct her first production in the position in Strauss’s “Salome” in the 2019–20 season with the HGO.
