As Duo Amadeae, they have performed in numerous festivals, concerto performances and duo recitals, and have been heard on WQXR as part of the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation’s piano series.
Dr. Esther Park has performed as a soloist with orchestras and in recitals across the United States, in Asia, and in major European cities, appearing with orchestras such as the Houston Symphony, Yale Philharmonia, Filharmonia Pomorska, Poland, Orchestra Filarmonica, Romania, Shanghai Philharmonic, China, the Juilliard Symphony, and the New Jersey Symphony.
