Er-Gene Kahng's performance have been described as "sporting a sweet warm tone" and "a caressing sense of phrase", "translat[ing] the music into a meaningful musical discourse that few virtuosi accomplish".

 

Er-Gene is a violinist passionately involved in multi-disciplinary collaborations.  Some recent highlights include working with the Texas Ballet Theater and choreographer, Jonathan Watkins, in their production of “Crash”, and the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, who will be premiering “Primary Series” (composed by Ryan Cockerham) in April 2017.  Er-Gene co-curated a new music series, “Fuse”, at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art featuring the works of American minimalism, indeterminacy, and postmodernism.  Her A/V collaborations include working with animator Wilson Borja, whose work, “Cheré” explores the phenomenon of forced and voluntary migration in relation to the African diaspora.   

 

Er-Gene is a recording artist and her current album projects include the complete Handel violin sonatas (Con Brio Records, 2017), and a preservation project reviving the two violin concertos of African-American composer, Florence Price (Albany Records). 

 

Er-Gene was an Arkansas Visiting Fellow with the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England from 2016-2017.  She attended UCLA, Yale School of Music, and Northwestern University.  She teaches at the University of Arkansas and resides in Fayetteville.
