Congratulations to Lindsey Kim on being named a Texas Young Master!

Last Thursday, the Texas Commission on the Arts and the Texas Cultural Trust announced the class of 2022 Texas Young Masters. We're excited to highlight each of these 15 talented young Texans, featuring Lindsey Kim today!

Lindsey Kim (Music-Violin), from Allen, is a junior at Allen High School. She started violin at age six and currently studies with Lucas Aleman. She has been a member of the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra for four years and currently serves the orchestra as the concertmaster. Additionally, she was selected to be the concertmaster of the Texas Music Educators Association’s Texas All-State Symphony Orchestra in 2021 and has won awards in various competitions and festivals. Her piano trio was invited to perform with professional orchestras at various art centers in the DFW area. Lindsey plans to use her Young Masters Award to study at Tanglewood Institute.

We're looking forward to congratulating Lindsey and all the 2022 Texas Young Masters in person during the May 10 celebration in Austin!

Young Masters is a grant program that provides exemplary art students in grades 8-11 with the financial help they need to pursue advanced study in the areas of visual arts, literary arts, music, theater, dance, musical theater, folk & traditional arts, and media arts. This year’s promising young students come from 12 cities and together display a variety of artistic talents.

The state’s most talented young artists receive the title of “Young Master” and are awarded grants of $5,000 per year to further their studies in their chosen arts disciplines. Students are eligible to receive the grant for two years. This gifted group of 15 students represents the eleventh class of Young Masters. Since the program’s inception in 2002, the TCT and TCA have named 184 Young Masters, awarding over $1.2 million to aspiring artists from across the state.
