Esther Yoo is the featured cover of The Strad magazine’s August 2021 issue. Interviewed via Zoom from Seoul, South Korea, where she has spent lockdown, Esther details her bright outlook for the future of classical music post-pandemic. She says, “This could turn out to be an exciting time for the classical music world. We’ve been forced to stop being on autopilot and all of us – managers, labels, venues, promoters – have an opportunity to look at how to do things differently. As an artist I find it exciting that we can now choose and create a way forward, because we aren’t going back to how it was.” Find the full interview here.
