Islander Pianist to Perform Faculty Recital at AMST, Brings Love to Coastal Bend Community

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Printings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures are exceptional on their own. But when these visual arts are mixed with a live musical performance, it creates a unique harmony of the senses that is truly extraordinary. To enjoy this unique experience, join the Department of Music at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi for a faculty piano recital by Dr. Sangmi Lim on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 3 p.m. at the Art Museum of South Texas (AMST).

“As a pianist, my job is to create vivid images and provide an enjoyable musical journey for my audience,” shared Lim, collaborative pianist and music instructor at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. “While I hope to inspire others, I am sure I will be additionally inspired by the art and exhibition at the museum.”

The recital, which is free and open to the public, will feature pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Liszt, and Robert Schumann. Lim has themed her performance “Love,” as each piece represents admiration and love to our dearest ones.

“The attendees will have an opportunity to hear these ‘classics’ in a new space and enjoy them in a whole new way,” Lim said. “It is also going to be a new experience for me since I have never played a solo recital in this wonderful museum.”

Lim has had the privilege of working with faculty and student performers in a variety of concert settings during her time at the Island University. She is also co-directing Piano Celebration Week – which will be held Sunday, March 24, through Sunday, March 31 – with her husband, Dr. Dino Mulic, assistant professor of music at A&M-Corpus Christi.

After Lim received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in music from Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea, she went on to earn her Doctor of Musical Arts (D.M.A.) from Michigan State University (MSU). Lim became part of the Island University’s Department of Music in 2016, as a collaborative pianist, following instructor positions at MSU and Lansing Community College.

This performance is one event in an eight-part Faculty Recital Series, four of which will take place at AMST and the other four at the Performing Arts Center at the Island University. A complete list of this year’s concert schedule can be found at the Department of Music’s 2019 event calendar.
