Violinist/Musician Heon Woo Kim, has been actively involved in the classical music industry for almost 3 decades.


Having experienced the industry from many dimensions, Heon decided to create a unique space for musicians and the community of Munich - during the peak of the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

Creating new ways to build bridges between cultures is something important for Heon, and the team behind the EMF is constantly developing new ways to protect and fortify our industry, so that future generations can benefit from classical music through the EMF. 


Having experienced poverty personally, Heon decided to develop a program with Caritas Muenchen, where the homeless & the under privileged receive free access to all of EMF's Masterclass components. By working together with the Masterclass students, Heon provides free monthly recitals to Caritas's, Meal Program participants.

Martin is a world renowned Violin Maker and Restorer. He is currently the workshop leader of the Erben Geigenbau, and has maintained and restored instruments of the violin family for more than 2 decades. All in all, he has a sound idea of the music industry.


Martin's goal is to create a platform where music can bring people from all cultures and backgrounds to Munich. He believes that music should be available for everyone, and through the EMF, he plans to rebuild bridges amongst people and communities.  

Our goal is to serve people through music, and therefore we ask you to join us in this important initiative to re-build, to re-connect and to re-start with EMF!
