Centre Stage

In light of the recent developments around international visitors arriving in Australia, we have taken the sad decision to cancel David Kim’s activities at the Conservatorium this week.

We will continue to monitor the Department of Health alerts and provide any important updates around other events as soon as they are available.


A jam-packed program of stimulating performances and events in 2020 showcases the immense talent of our young emerging artists and their mentors, along with celebrated alumni, and national and internationally recognised guest artists. From workshops and lectures to intimate chamber performances and large-scale collaborations, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

The Irwin Street Collective presents David Kim

David Hyun-Su Kim has distinguished himself as one of the most thoughtful and distinctive musicians to emerge from the newest generation of American pianists. 

A native of upstate New York, David holds degrees from Harvard, Yale, and Cornell universities and a doctorate from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. He has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Austria, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the United Kingdom, South Korea, and Australia.
His current academic research focuses on performance practice, with particular emphasis on organology, historical recordings, performance style, improvisation, and notation. 

As Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow and Artist-in-Residence with the Irwin Street Collective, David will work closely with UWA Conservatorium of Music staff and students. His visit will culminate in a lecture recital where he will discuss the interpretation of the keyboard music from the classical era, performing on a Viennese fortepiano.
