My Music - Sensible Stylista

My Music

Alright guys, so you all know me as Kimberly Kong the blogger, but I want you guys to meet Kimberly Kong the classical pianist! I started playing at a young age - I think I was 5 or so? That's how long it's been - I don't even remember, ha.  I was 9 when I had my first big performance.  Playing with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra was nerve-racking, but it was definitely life-changing!  
I went on to get my Bachelor's in Piano Performance at Peabody - it's part of Johns Hopkins - and my Master's at Juilliard.  I'm actually STILL in school.  I know, I know, I'm a masochist.  I'm currently getting my doctorate in Piano Performance and a second master's in Musicology back at Peabs.  I can't WAIT until my students call me Doc Kong - I teach at the Peabody Prep.  Doesn't it sound like a video game of some sort?
Unfortunately, I don't have any video clips up yet, but I will soon so stay tuned!  Before I leave you all, I want to tell you guys about my fab cello-piano duo: The Ward-Kong Duo. Alicia Ward, my cellist, and I been playing together since 2011.  I'd love for you guys to check out our website HERE.  I think we're pretty awesome, but I may or may not be biased, ha. We'll be playing a bunch of concerts in the DMV area soon so make sure to keep an eye out for us.  Don't forget to support us on twitter!
