When: Sunday Dec. 9, 3 p.m.

Where: The Scripps Research Institute

One of Jeeyoon Kim’s earliest memories is of playing the piano as a little girl in her native Korea.

“I feel like the piano is an extension of my body… I was always that musical kid, I loved to sing. The key is to keep going and keep loving and early on I think I knew I loved it and I still I do,” said Kim.

Kim has continued sharing her passion for the piano with audiences all over the world. On Sunday, the San Diego resident will mark the release of her new album, "Over. Above. Beyond." with a performance at The Scripps Research Institute. In addition to Kim's commentary from the stage, the concert will feature a dozen illustrations that will be projected on a screen to accompany some of the pieces off her new album.

Kim talks about the making of her new album on Midday on Wednesday.
