5 Questions for Michael Jinsoo Lim :
What do you love most about being a musician?
I love that feeling, as a performer or listener, when everything else disappears, and you are completely lost in the music.
Who or what is your greatest musical inspiration?
In college, I was very fortunate to get to study with the legendary Josef Gingold at Indiana University. I can't help thinking of him every time I pick up my violin. When I started out in Mr. Gingold's class, I liked the violin. By the time I left, I loved everything about it.
What profession would you be interested in, if you weren't a musician?
I was fond of science and math in school, but for most of my childhood I wanted to be a professional basketball player. As I got older, it became evident that my vibrato was way better than my cross-over dribble, so... Now, I think being a chef would be something I could really enjoy.
What do you like to do in your spare time? (...if you have any spare time!)
I like to cook a lot, and I spend a lot of my free time thinking about food! On Sundays in the fall, when I'm not performing, you can find me in my man-cave, glued to the TV, watching the Seattle Seahawks.
What is your favorite food/meal/restaurant?
The three things that I seemingly never get tired of eating are: pizza, steak and sushi.
