Hyunkyum Kim impressed the judges at Timmendorfer Strand with arias by Mozart, Donizetti, Giordano and Korngold and a song by Schumann. His award is combined with an engagement at the Eutin Festival for a soloist role, which is rewarded with at least 3000 Euro.
Hyunkyum Kimm will therefore be seen on the Eutin Lake Stage in 2020 as Imperial Commissioner in Puccini's opera "Madama Butterfly". The musical director is Hilary Griffiths, who was also a member of the jury at the Maritim Music Competition. He is looking forward to working with Hyunkyum Kim, who is still studying at the Hochschule für Musik in Hannover.
The competition for the Maritim Music Prize, held for the 20th time, is traditionally closely linked to the Eutin Festival. This is ensured not only by her honorary prize for the active promotion of young singers, but also by her personal commitment. Representatives of the Festspiele are therefore frequently part of the jury, which is led by Rainer Wulff, the long-standing host of the gala evenings at the Festspiele.
