About Im Tae Kyung

Im Tae Kyung is a famous crossover tenor in South Korea. He started taking singing and piano lessons at the age of six. After finishing elementary school, he entered the Vocal Music Department of Yewon School. After graduating from Yewon, he traveled with his family to Switzerland, where he studied at the Institute de le Rosey high school. At the age of 19 he traveled to the USA to study science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Boston. He managed to study singing with the American tenor Richard Cassilly who taught in the Department of Vocal Music at Boston University and who seemed to have recognized his talent, but for six months, while giving him music lessons, did not give him a word of support. One day, he introduced him to the university administrator to attend a summer c& in Italy and asked him to prepare an audition to sing for the students. Only two weeks later, Casilly died in Boston of a heart attack.
