Since Seulki arrived in Austin a year and a half ago, she has already: won the Principal Cello position of the Round Rock Symphony Orchestra; won the Associate Principal Cello position of the Victoria Symphony Orchestra; become a member of the Britten-Pears Orchestra, led by conductor Marin Alsop, performing at Snape Maltings Concert Hall in Suffolk and Royal Festival Hall in London; and become a member of the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra, performing at the Luzerne Concert Hall, the Köln Konzertsaal, and the Hamburg Der Grosse Saal. Seulki also won Second Prize in the Lewisville International Competition for Strings.

The Graduate Fellowship will allow Seulki to focus on one of her life passions, the Six Unaccompanied Cello Suites of Bach. Congratulations, Seulki!
