#304 Texu Kim

Texu Kim writes music that’s fun, often humorous yet sophisticated, detailed and connected to his South Korean heritage in fascinating ways.

He’s also the only composer we know to offer “major-league cuteness” (Broadway World) while also demonstrating “surprising scope.” (San Diego Story)
