Kyung Wha Chung awarded honorary doctorate

The New England Conservatory in Boston have celebrated Kyung Wha Chung’s phenomenal career to date by conferring upon her an honorary Doctorate in Music.

In a moving speech, Kyung Wha was described as a trailblazing role model who has shown generations of young Korean women how to be unafraid of being successful.  The true magnitude of her powerful contribution to music-making was beautifully summarised as follows:

“In Korea, Ms. Chung is a national and cultural treasure.  For people everywhere who love music, she is a human treasure.”
