Meet Ka Youn Yoo

We are pleased to introduce Ka Youn Yoo, an exceptionally talented composer from South Korea, as one of our key tutors for the upcoming Commonwealth Resounds initiatives. Ka Youn has just graduated with a master’s degree in Composition for Screen from the Royal College of Music (RCM).

Her compositions have earned her international recognition, with premieres at prestigious venues such as Cadogan Hall in London, The Korean Ministry of Unification (대한민국 통일부) and National Gugak Center (국립국악원) in South Korea, Dobříš Castle in the Czech Republic, and Government House in Antigua and Barbuda. Her global experiences and innovative approach to music make her a remarkable addition to our team.

Global Recognition

Ka Youn is actively involved in the film industry, working on several short films with emerging directors in both the UK and Korea. She is represented by Lemon Sound, a notable music production company based in South Korea. This collaboration highlights her dynamic range and ability to bridge different cultural and artistic landscapes.

This will be Ka Youn’s second tour of Antigua and Barbuda, where she will once again contribute her expertise and passion for music to inspire young musicians on the island. Her return is highly anticipated, and we are excited about the creative energy she will bring to our workshops and performances.

Revisiting the islands

Ka Youn is returning to Antigua & Barbuda for her third tour, having been a member of the composition team where she led training sessions for teachers in the island. This year, Ka Youn will lead workshops in film composition, supporting students from across the Caribbean. We look forward to the incredible impact she will have on the young musicians of Antigua and Barbuda.
