When not teaching in Dominican University of California’s music program and serving as chair of the Department of Music, Dance and Performing Arts, June Choi Oh continues a successful career performing in concert halls around the world.

Oh will perform at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall on January 28 as part of the San Francisco Symphony Chamber Music Series. She will perform the Debussy Piano Trio with San Francisco Symphony musicians, Kelly Leon-Pearce, violin, and David Goldblatt, cello. The concert begins at 2 p.m.

Dominican’s music program provides varied studies of music within a strong liberal arts curriculum. The music program also welcomes all majors to participate in the program's performing ensembles, to study an instrument or voice in group or private study, to learn about music, and to study music through the university’s core program.

"I am inspired and energized by the students' passion and dedication to music in our program, and I feel privileged to teach and be part of their educational journey,” Oh says.

Dominican’s Musical Arts Minor complements all majors with educational emphasis in creativity and artistic expression, and the graduates have gone on to careers in medicine, science, business, arts management, advertising, and teaching, among others.

“Our students form strong bonds with each other over their love for music and artistic pursuit, which often last well beyond their collegiate years. Fortunately, we are also able to provide substantial Music Scholarships to those who qualify, thanks to our robust Music Endowments built by our dedicated friends and alumni."

Oh, who holds BM and MM degrees from the Juilliard School, has appeared as a soloist with the New Haven Symphony, Aspen Concert Orchestra, and Filarmonica de Jalisco in Mexico, among others. As a recitalist, Oh has performed at the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium at the United Nations in New York City, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series in Chicago, Kieler Schloss in Germany, and Stadsgehoorzaal in Holland, also appearing in the Aspen Music Festival and Victoria Music Festival (Canada). She also has performed on radio stations WNCN in New York City, WPKT in Connecticut, WFMT in Chicago, and KQED in San Francisco, as well as on nationally televised performances on PBS, and abroad on Danish National Television (DR).

An avid chamber musician, Oh appears frequently in leading chamber concert series, including by the San Francisco Symphony at Davies Symphony Hall, and the New York Philharmonic series at Merkin Concert Hall. She has performed at Dinkelspiel Auditorium at Stanford University, St. Mary’s College, Holy Names College, Kutztown University (PA), Arrowhead Arts Association, San Jose Chamber Music Series, Berkeley Chamber Series, and a multi-island concert tour of Hawaii made possible by a National Endowments for the Arts Grant. She has given recitals and master classes in Cabrillo College, Napa Valley College, Mendocino College and Mission College.

Oh was a performer and a faculty member at Yong Pyong International Music Festival in Korea and Victoria Music Festival in Canada.  She also directed the Pacific Music Festival of California from 1996 to 1999, which was held at Stanford University and Santa Clara University.  She is a former faculty member of the Manhattan School of Music and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
