Junior Fellow Joo Yeon Sir beat off competition from five other talented finalists at The Arts Club Karl Jenkins Classical Music Award, which is held at the famous club in central London in association with Classic FM.
As well as her £4,000 prize, Joo Yeon will now record a piece of her choice and a short work composed especially by Karl Jenkins, both of which will be broadcast on Classic FM. The runners up, accordionist Iosif Purits and violinist Benjamin Baker, each received a cash prize of £500.
The other three finalists were Shiry Rashkovsky (viola), Euncho Yeom (recorder) and Andrejs Osokins (piano). During the evening event, candidates were judged based upon their technique, individualism, musicality, interpretation, communication and overall performance.
