Hyuna Park

Hyuna Park “Hyuna Park has amazing facility, a beautiful sound and great musical ideas.” — Bruce Barth “Hyuna Park is a beautiful new voice on the piano. She plays with a feeling and maturity that is rare.” — Vincent Herring An award-winning jazz pianist, Hyuna Park deeply connects to New York’s vibrant jazz tradition while simultaneously embracing her Korean and classical roots. She was the 2018 winner of the International Women in Jazz festival as well as the Jimmy Heath Award. She has graced the stage with Grammy award-winners such as Luis Bonilla, Michael Mossman and Vincent Herring and performed at notable venues such as the Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington D.C., the Dizzy Gillespie Auditorium, the United Nations in New York City. She has toured Japan, Korea, China, France, Switzerland and the Canary Islands. Hyuna formed a trio in 2018 with country/folk bassist Myles Sloniker and funk drummer Peter Traunmueller as a non-traditional band that infuses various styles and musical elements into their core jazz repertoire. Hyuna and her band are regulars at many of the more prestigious jazz venues in New York City such as Birdland, Zinc Bar, Iridium and The Django.
