Houston Grand Opera has signed Eun Sun Kim as principal guest conductor, starting September 2019.

‘Eun Sun Kim seems to me a limitless talent at the outset of an important career,’ said HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers, ‘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.’
