On Deck with Erwin Kim

Download MP3

17-year old Erwin Kim just wrapped up his junior year at Central Catholic High School, and is a member of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony as BOTH a violinist and a French hornist.

As if that doesn’t keep him busy enough, Erwin is also a member of his school’s baseball team AND volunteers for a local nonprofit assisting North Korean refugees.

In this episode of “On Deck,” Erwin tells Christa about how he views being busy as being “greedy,” and we’ll  also learn about his learned optimism.

Though Erwin spends the bulk of his time playing French horn, he still plays violin.  Here he performs  Shostakovich with other young musicians at the Chamber Music Camp of Portland.
