Kyoungsun made his concerto debut with the Seoul National University Symphony Orchestra in the Concert Hall of the Seoul Arts Center, performing his own jazz inspired cadenza. He has performed as a soloist with the Orchester de la Suisse Romande, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Mihail Jora Philharmonic Orchestra, in Korea with the TIMF Orchestra and the Korea University Orchestra.
