Yoon-Chan Kim

Music and education are my great passions. I feel very fortunate then to be at Oberlin, where we celebrate both world-class performing arts and an elite liberal arts education with equal pride and joy.
 
Born and raised in South Korea, I moved to northern California when I was nine years old. I found music as soon as I arrived, and have been playing the flute ever since. I attended Pomona College where I studied politics and music, and discovered the import of education as a student intern in the admissions office. Upon graduation, I returned to Korea on a Fulbright Fellowship to teach English to high school students. I then worked for my alma mater before joining Oberlin College.
 
The wealth of opportunities Oberlin students have astounds me everyday. I am eager to share with you all that we offer, and look forward to a chance to meet you when I travel to Nevada and northern California.


 
Did You Know

Music isn’t just something one does at Oberlin; it’s part of the institution’s DNA. With some 500 free concerts and recitals per year, the campus abounds with rhythm, be it pop, rock, jazz, new music, or classical. Conservatory students in particular have many opportunities to perform with more than two-dozen large ensembles and several small ad hoc student groups.
