Moon-Sook Park Wins Academic Excellence Award From the Korean-American University Professors Association

Moon-Sook Park, associate professor of voice in the department of music at the University of Arkansas, was presented with the Academic Excellence Award from the Korean-American University Professors Association. Dr. Park was honored in recognition of her co-authored two-volume work Korean Art Songs: An Anthology and Guide for Performance and Study, published by Classical Vocal Reprint in 2017. It is the first authoritative anthology of Korean art songs to be published in the United States.

Music critic and pianist Warren Jones wrote in his endorsement in 2017, “This new Korean Art Song Anthology is sure to be a most welcome addition to anyone’s — teacher’s, student’s, or coach’s — library, as it opens in a clear and vibrant way this wonderful song literature from the Korean nation and the Korean spirit. The essays on lyric Korean diction and the history of Korean Art Song are invaluable additions to our knowledge and our collections.”

Professor Park began her professional singing career in Europe. She made her U.S. debut with a solo recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City in 2001.

Dr. Park is a graduate of Seoul National University in Korea. She holds a doctorate in voice performance and vocal pedagogy from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and graduate degrees from Freiburg, Saarbrücken, and Stuttgart music conservatories in Germany.
