Maine Public is a media sponsor of The Collins Center for the Arts' Chamber Music Series. The season begins on Sunday afternoon, September 15, with a concert featuring violinist Bomsori Kim and pianist Philip Chiu.

Winner of the 62nd ARD International Music Competition, Bomsori Kim has established herself as part of an emerging generation of internationally recognized violinists. Bomsori began gaining attention in 2010 as the youngest prizewinner of the 4th Sendai International Music Competition, which led to an internationally acclaimed concert debut in 2010. Noted by La Presse as "...a pianist-painter who turns every musical idea into a beautiful array of colors," Philip Chiu is lauded for the brilliance, color and sensitivity of his playing, and is particularly noted for his ability to connect with audiences on and off stage.
