James Kim

Artistic Director

As the artistic director of Colorado Bach Ensemble, James Kim has dedicated himself to performing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries at the highest artistic level for American audiences. He has studied and worked with some of the greatest Bach interpreters of our time, including Phillipe Herreweghe and Helmuth Rilling, with whom he spent two years in Stuttgart, Germany.

Building on the rich history of Bach scholarship and performance, James Kim brings his own approach and commitment to the music he performs in Colorado. A recent review captures Kim’s desire to perform and teach the music of Bach: “James Kim is one of the few conductors that I have ever known who has the stamina and courage to present a lecture concert… I am sure that this is extremely useful for the members of the audience at large who might not have been trained musicians. I know they appreciated it for they gave Colorado Bach Ensemble a standing ovation. Both the lecture and the performance were superb.”

Dr. Kim is also the Director of Choral Activities at Colorado State University – Fort Collins, and Director of the Chancel Choir at Bethany Lutheran Church in Cherry Hills Village.
