Hyuna Park Hyuna Park

Hyuna Park “Hyuna Park has amazing facility, a beautiful sound and great musical ideas.” — Bruce Barth “Hyuna Park is a beautiful new voice on the piano. She plays with a feeling and maturity that is rare.” — Vincent Herring An award-winning jazz pianist, Hyuna Park deeply connects to New York’s vibrant jazz tradition while simultaneously embracing her Korean and classical roots. She was the 2018 winner of the International Women in Jazz festival as well as the Jimmy Heath Award. She has graced the stage with Grammy award-winners such as Luis Bonilla, Michael Mossman and Vincent Herring and performed at notable venues such as the Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington D.C., the Dizzy Gillespie Auditorium, the United Nations in New York City. She has toured Japan, Korea, China, France, Switzerland and the Canary Islands. Hyuna formed a trio in 2018 with country/folk bassist Myles Sloniker and funk drummer Peter Traunmueller as a non-traditional band that infuses various styles and musical elements into their core jazz repertoire. Hyuna and her band are regulars at many of the more prestigious jazz venues in New York City such as Birdland, Zinc Bar, Iridium and The Django.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
