September 7, 2015CD Review from Fanfare MagazineJasmine's latest album Telemann Files by Fanfare Magazine:
...Korean flutist Jasmine Choi began her training at the Curtis Institute at age 16 and completed a master's degree at the Juilliard School; The Telemann Files is her first Baroque album and her filth solo CD. Choi draws out the contrapuntal textures of the fantasias with a robust lower register. She has a broad color palette, which lends well to the development of individual characters. Her approach to the A-Major is spirited yet innocent. ... Choi's articulation is crisp and clean throughout, and her intonation is spotless. ... The best track on Choi's album is the Fantasia in D Major, ‘Alla francese," which she plays with welcome abandon. Choi is more generous with her vibrato in the upper register, and her tone in the lower register pedal points is explosive. The ornamental scales are played deliberately, with equal attention devoted to each note. The trills, likewise, are even, with the upper and lower note receiving the same duration and volume. Choi's performance of the largo preceding the final presto is exceptional. Overall, this is a CD that I highly recommend. ... This CD won't be collecting dust on my shelf any time soon.
- Natalie Piontek.

Thanks for watching this video and stay tuned till the next one:) Best wishes, Jasmine

February 2, 2014Concert Review: "Goddess plays the flute" by Augsburger Allgemeine, GermanyA fantastic review from Jasmine's Ibert Concerto concert:

"Erstmals in Ingolstadt war die von der Zeitung Korea Times als „Göttin der Flöte“ hochgelobte Jasmine Choi an der Donau zu erleben. Sie ist eine der meist gefeierten Flötistinnen unserer Zeit. Die Solistin der Wiener Symphoniker, mittlerweile mit weltweit bedeutenden Auszeichnungen bedacht, intonierte an diesem Abend mit dem von Jacques Ibert verfassten Konzert für Flöte und Orchester wohl eines der anspruchsvollsten Solowerke überhaupt.
Technisch höchst anspruchsvoll
Dabei zeigte die junge talentierte Musikerin ihre musikalische Prägnanz, imponierte durch glänzende Intonation und Artikulation und gab sich in den technisch höchst anspruchsvollen Phrasen meisterhaft. Auch wenn sich das Publikum sicherlich ein weniger sperrig klingendes Werk gewünscht hätte, so war die melodische Linienführung der 14 K-Gold-Flöte dieser Ausnahmemusikerin im besten Sinne kompatibel mit den nicht weniger idiomatischen Streicherstimmen und der ebenso anspruchsvollen Harmoniebegleitung.

December 14, 2013Mozart CD Review by The Falter, Austria"Die Wiener Symphoniker ließen die Flötistin Jasmine Choi im Sommer ziehen und verlängerten ihren Vertrag nach dem obligaten Probejahr nicht. Die makellos klingende Antwort: Gemeinsam mit den Stimmführern des Orchesters nahm die Koreanerin nun die vier Flötenquartette von Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart auf. Feine, höchst unterhaltsame Musik – träumerisch, keck, reizvoll verspielt –, in der Mozart die Flöte ins schönste kammermusikalische Rampenlicht rückt."

March 29, 2013A Rave Review of Brahms' 4th Symphony"Orchestral soloists were excellent – including the new principal flutist. Luisi’s phrasing was intimate and deeply personal in the slow movement, and the audience barely moved. The Scherzo, in contrast, was brilliant and red-blooded. In the finale, Choi phrased the famous flute solo with exquisite beauty, projecting a tone of almost vocal color on her golden flute." from Cincinnati Enquirer

Superstar flutist Jasmine Choi was named one of the Top 10 Greatest Flutist in History by Sinfini Magazine, UK in February 2015, and she is at her best shape than ever before. Choi is extremely well-known for her golden tone, highly sophisticated musicianship, charismatic stage presence, as well as her ground-breaking technique, her adventurous approach to repertoire, and daring to play other genres than limiting herself in closed walls.

She is a flutist for whom it can be said that the descriptor “first” is uncommonly apt. Choi was the first Korean musician and first Asian principal to join the Vienna Symphony in the orchestra’s storied 113-year history, the first Korean woodwind player to be hired as principal by a major symphony orchestra in the United States, the first classical musician to attempt the official Pops Recital tour in Korea, and the first Korean featured as a cover story in Flute Talk magazine USA.

Korea Times praised her as "the Goddess of the Flute", and after having served as principal flute of the Vienna Symphony and associate principal flute of the Cincinnati Symphony, Choi has now moved on to a high-flying career as a full-time soloist.

Born in Seoul and raised in Daejon, South Korea, Jasmine Choi is from a family where most members of the family were professional classical musicians; including her conductor grandfather and her violinist mother to name a few. She began her musical studies on violin at age three, and piano at five. Her interest in music, however, has only realized when she picked up the flute which was a present for her ninth birthday. Playing the flute has become her biggest passion ever since.

At 16, Choi came to the United States when she was accepted to study at the Curtis Institute of Music on a full scholarship. The legendary New York Philharmonic principal Julius Baker called her "a huge sensation," and she studied with him for four years until his death in 2003 which left Choi as the last student of the legend. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Curtis Institute of Music and a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School where she studied with Philadelphia Orchestra principal Jeffrey Khaner, and later she continued her further studies with Thomas Robertello. Upon her graduation at Juilliard School, Choi moved directly to play as associate principal flute at Cincinnati Symphony when 22 years old, and six years later she moved on to Vienna Symphony.

Nominated by Symphony magazine as one of "America's Emerging Artists" in 2005, Jasmine Choi was presented on the "Rising Stars" series in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Performance highlights include solo recitals at Wigmore Hall in London, Konzerthaus Schubert Saal in Vienna, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, Seoul Arts Center in Seoul, and she has appeared as a soloist in the Musikverein Golden Hall in Vienna, Konzerthaus Mozart Saal in Vienna, Dvorak and Smetana Halls in Prague, and Disney Hall in Los Angeles.

She has performed as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, Juilliard Symphony, Vienna Symphony, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Salzburg Mozarteum, Turku Philharmonic, Riga Sinfonietta, Czech Philharmonic Chamber, Seoul Philharmonic, KBS Symphony, among many others. As an ambassador of classical music, Choi also performed at the UN president Ban Ki-Moon's inauguration reception in New York, and she was a soloist with Vienna Symphony for the opening concert of the Bregenz Festival. Choi was invited as a featured soloist for the National Flute Association (NFA)’s 40th anniversary in Las Vegas, and was extensively celebrated with her solo performances including the opening gala concert and the closing ceremony, as well as a solo recital.

Adventurous in expanding the repertoire for flute, Jasmine Choi performs her own arrangements of the violin concertos of Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky, the Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Zigeunerweisen, as well as numerous other violin and cello sonatas. Her arrangements of the Bach’s Double Concerto for two violins and the Monti’s Czardas have been published by the Falls House Press USA.

Also active in the contemporary classical music scene, her early commissions include works by Korean-American composers Solbong Kim and James Ra, and she frequently performs the works of Isang Yun. More recently, the well-known flutist and composer Gary Schocker dedicated a piece to her called “Winter Jasmine”, in celebration of Choi’s new 14k gold flute handmade by David Straubinger. A composer/conductor Mark Laycok has written "the Flute Concerto for Jasmine Choi" for flute and string orchestra which had the US and European premieres with the composer on the podium. Choi also made the world-premiere of the Detlev Glanert's Mozart Variations for flute and orchestra which was broadcasted live by ORF TV in Austria.

As a recording artist, Choi has recorded five solo CDs including Sony Classical label; the Mozart Flute Concertos, Fantasy: Virtuosic Flute Works, Claude Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Trio, Mozart Flute Quartets, and her latest CD "The Telemann Files" has made a fresh wave in the music scene as she made an extremely successful crowdfunding online.

Despite her shining career, Choi has experienced low points in her life several times. She was only 12 years old when she bravely left her family in order to study music in Seoul, suffering through severe stomach disorders driven by extreme homesickness and practicing without taking time to eat. Then while enrolled at Curtis Institute of Music, she was diagnosed by several doctors who told that she would not be able to play the flute any longer because of a nerve-related issue on her right hand. Choi was neither able to hold the flute nor such light things as a pencil for 6 months, not to mention that it led her to a serious depression. While in Cincinnati, she was stuck in search of the true meaning of life which most of the time made her discouraged as she got deeper in thoughts, and while in Vienna although it was her lifelong dream city, several conservative colleagues were not kind to this young Asian female principal. Choi now speaks of all the incidents that they made her stronger in the end, more appreciative in life, and her music has enriched in depth.

Highlights of the season 2015-2016 includes performing with the Berlin Symphony at the Philharmonie Berlin(Germany), the Baden-Baden Philharmonic at the KKL in Lucern(Switzerland), the Korean Symphony for their New Year's Eve concert in Seoul(Korea), George Enescu Philharmonic in Bucharest(Romania), Olten Philharmonic in Izmir(Turkey), recitals in Paris(France), Berlin(Germany), Arlberg(Austria), Madrid(Spain), Bangkok(Thailand), Seoul(Korea), and her own annual master classes in Bregenz(Austria).

Seeking to use music as a conduit to both console and inspire her listeners, Choi enjoys sharing her thoughts and communicates directly with fans. For more news, videos and updated schedule at www.jasminechoi.com

Many of us remember Rampal’s iconic recording of the Bolling Suite.

"Mr. Laycock, Ms. Choi and the Buffalo Philharmonic presented a mid-summer treat of well-played and well-appreciated music. Mr. Laycock's Flute Concerto for Jasmine Choi (Songbird's Journey) showcased the young Korean flute virtuoso Jasmine Choi, clearly a rising star on the international music scene...this three-movement work drew upon the full virtuosic abilities of the prodigious Ms. Choi. (She) played the joyful themes with clear runs, supporting the atmosphere of birds chasing one another. Throughout the work, Ms Choi played with a great deal of physical energy and determination, fitting well into the majestic phrases."Nancy PlumTown Topics - Princeton, NJ

“플루트의 여신” – 한국일보
“이시대 플루트의 선구자” – 필라델피아 인콰이어러
"환영하오, 비르투오조 플루트!" - 월간객석
"재스민최(최나경)는 콘서트홀 천장이 다 깨어질듯한 놀라운 연주로 유명하다." - 영국 신피니뮤직

전세계로부터 인정받은 슈퍼스타 플루티스트 최나경은 지난 2015년 2월, 영국의 저명한 클래식 잡지 신피니뮤직에서 선정한 "역대 10대 최고의 플루티스트" 명단에 타계한 플루트의 전설 마르셀 모이즈, 줄리어스 베이커, 장피에르 랑팔을 비롯, 제임스 골웨이와 엠마누엘 파후드와 나란히 선정되었으며, 날로 발전하는 실력과 함께 현재 그녀의 최고 전성기를 맞이하고 있다. 최나경은 그녀의 황금빛 사운드, 디테일한 음악적 감각과 무대매너는 물론, 하늘을 찌를듯한 테크닉으로 잘 알려져 있으며, 도전적인 클래식 레퍼토리를 비롯해 클래식 이외의 많은 장르를 접하는 뮤지션으로 청중들에게는 이미 친숙한 연주자이다.

플루티스트 최나경, 하면 주로 “첫” 이라는 수식어가 따라붙는다. 미국 메이저 오케스트라에 입단한 첫 한국인 관악주자, 미국의 저명한 플루트잡지 “Flute Talk” 커버를 장식한 첫 한국인, 국내에서 공식으로 “팝 리사이틀”을 시도한 첫 클래식 연주자, 그리고 최나경은 245대 1의 경쟁률을 뚫고 오디션에 만장일치로 합격해 113년 전통의 비엔나 심포니에 입단한 역사상 첫 한국인이자 첫 여성수석으로 기록되었다. 이후 전격 솔리스트로서의 커리어를 힘차게 이어가고 있는 그녀는 앞으로 계속해서 플루트를 연주하고 팬들과 음악을 나눌 수 있는 한, 음악으로 소통할 수 있어 기쁘고 감사하다고 말한다.

미주 한국일보는 “피아노와 바이올린 선율밖엔 관심이 없던 시절, 장한나의 등장은 첼로가 얼마나 인간적인 소리를 내는 악기인지 깨닫게 했다. 이젠 플루티스트 최나경의 차례다.” 라고 극찬한 바 있으며, 미국의 음악잡지 “Symphony” 매거진으로부터 3년 연속 “떠오르는 아티스트”로 선정되었고, 일찍이 필라델피아 인콰이어러로부터 "건강한 소리를 가진 대단한 재능의 소유자" 라는 호평을 받은 바 있다.

최나경은 서울에서 태어나 대전에서 유년기를 보내고 음악을 더 배우고자 홀로 서울 유학을 결심, 예원학교에 입학하여 음악가가 되기 위한 노력을 본격적으로 시작하게 된다. 졸업후 서울예고 1학년 재학 중, 플루트의 거장 줄리어스 베이커로부터 “커다란 센세이션”이라는 극찬을 받으며 만 16세에 미국 커티스 음대에 전액 장학생으로 입학하였고, 이후 그가 세상을 떠나기 전까지 4년을 같이 공부하며 거장의 마지막 제자가 되었다. 줄리어드 음대 대학원에서 제프리 케이너의 지도 아래 석사과정을 마쳤고, 졸업과 동시에 신시내티 심포니 부수석으로 활동하였다.

신시내티 심포니의 당시 음악감독 파보 예르비의 지휘아래 신시내티 심포니와 솔리스트로 협연하였고, 비엔나 심포니에서의 활동 시절에는 세계적인 브레겐츠 페스티벌의 오프닝 콘서트에서 오스트리아 대통령과 문화부장관 등을 비롯한 저명인사들이 지켜보는 가운데 비엔나심포니와 솔리스트로 협연하였으며, 그 연주는 오스트리아 전역으로 티비 생방송 중계가 되며 극찬을 받았다.

그밖에 필라델피아 오케스트라, 잘츠부르크 모차르테움, 상트페테르부르크 필하모닉, 체코 필하모닉 챔버, 줄리어드 심포니, KBS교향악단, 유라시안 필하모닉, 서울, 부천, 부산, 인천, 대전 시립교향악단, 등과 협연하였고, 미국과 유럽, 한국에서 수차례 독주회를 가진 바 있다. 후학양성에도 큰 열정이 있어 평소에도 틈틈이 젊은 음악도들을 지도하고 있는 최나경은 미국 줄리어드 음대, 커티스 음대, 맨하탄 음대, 인디애나 음대, 플로리다 주립대학, 오스트리아 비엔나 국립음대에서 초빙교수로 공식 마스터 클래스를 가졌으며, 특히 오스트리아 브레겐츠에서는 매년 그녀만의 인터내셔널 마스터클래스를 열고 있다.

미국 아스트랄 재단의 "라이징 스타"시리즈의 일환으로 뉴욕의 카네기 홀과 필라델피아의 킴멜센터에서 연주하였고, 그밖에 런던 위그모어홀, 비엔나의 무지크페라인 골든홀, 콘체르트하우스 모차르트홀과 슈베르트홀을 비롯해 프라하의 드보르작홀, 스메타나홀, 로스앤젤레스의 디즈니홀, 필라델피아의 아카데미 오브 뮤직, 킴멜센터의 버라이즌홀 등에서 솔리스트로 연주한 바 있다.

필라델피아 오케스트라 협연자 콩쿠르, 야마하 영 아티스트 콩쿠르 우승, 그리고 줄리어드 재학시에는 줄리어드에서 주최한 협연자 콩쿠르에서 우승하여 학교 100주년 기념 시즌의 오프닝 콘서트에서 제임스 디프리스트가 지휘하는 줄리어드 심포니와 협연하였다. 필라델피아 오케스트라 협연자 콩쿠르에서는 이례적으로 단독우승임과 동시에 기존의 피아노나 현악기가 아닌 관악기라는 점에서 주목을 받았다.

한국 그리고 클래식의 홍보대사로서 뉴욕에서 열린 유엔재단의 반기문 총장의 재임기념 리셉션에 초빙되어 연주하였으며, 미국 라스베가스에서 전세계 플루티스트들과 애호가들 4000여명이 참석한 플루트 컨벤션의 40주년 행사에 올해의 솔리스트로 초청되어 오프닝 갈라콘서트와 폐막 콘서트를 비롯해 세번의 연주를 성공리에 마치며 축하를 받았고, 컨벤션에서 주최하는 영아티스트 콩쿠르 심사위원으로 위촉되기도 하였다.

30년 경력의 플루트 제작자 데이비드 스트라빙거가 손수 제작한 14K 골드 플루트를 연주하고 있으며, 최나경의 새로운 악기를 축하하기 위해 스트라빙거가 작곡가 개리쇼커에게 위촉한 작품, “Winter Jasmine”은 이미 그 음반과 악보가 시중에서 큰 호평을 받고 있으며, 직접 편곡해 연주한 바하의 두대의 바이올린을 위한 협주곡, 몬티의 차르다스 등의 악보가 미국에서 출판되었다. 현대음악에도 깊은 조예가 있어 학생시절부터 김솔봉, 제임스 라 등의 한국계 미국 작곡가들에게 작품을 위촉하였으며, 한국이 낳은 최고의 작곡가 중의 하나인 윤이상의 작품을 자주 연주하며 한국을 알리고 있다. 가장 최근에는 독일 작곡가 데틀레프 글렌에트가 작곡한 모차르트 바레이션 협주곡을 비엔나 심포니와 세계초연 하였고, 미국 작곡가 마크 레이콕이 헌정한 "재스민최를 위한 플루트 협주곡"은 작곡가의 지휘 아래 미국과 유럽 초연이 성공리에 연주되었다.

그녀와 함께 제작된 플루트 가방 “재스민 백”은 전세계 플루트 연주자들에게 큰 사랑을 받고 있으며, 유럽의 가장 큰 와인체인 Wein&Co 에서는 2014-2015시즌 내내 비엔나 콘체르트하우스에서 나오는 모든 프로그램북에 두 페이지에 걸쳐 최나경의 광고를 게재하였다. 그 외에 럭셔리 패션브랜드 올포드와 화장품 브랜드 SK-II 에서도 그녀를 응원함으로써 최나경은 클래식 뿐만 아니라 이시대 문화 전반을 이끌어가는 아이콘으로도 자리매김 하였다.

소니클래시컬에서 모차르트 협주곡 음반을 비롯해 비르투오조 플루트 소품집인 “Fantasy”, 그리고 클로드볼링 재즈모음곡 음반에 이어 비엔나심포니의 현악 수석멤버들과 함께한 모차르트 플루트 콰르텟 음반이 발매되었으며, 모두 언론과 음악애호가들에게 최고의 찬사를 받으며 세계적으로 두터운 팬층을 가지고 있다. 최근에는 그 팬들의 성원으로 3만불(한화 약 3500만원)에 달하는 크라우드펀딩을 성공시키며 팬들과의 합작으로 그녀의 첫 바로크 음반인 "The Telemann Files"를 발매하여 이슈가 되었다.

화려한 스포트라이트를 한몸에 받고 있는 최나경. 하지만 그녀에게도 힘든 시기가 여러번 있었다. 어린 나이에 음악을 하겠다고 대전에서 서울로 가족을 떠나 홀로서기를 시작한 나이는 불과 만 12세. 연습으로 집생각을 잊으려 했지만 결국 깊은 향수병과 함께 찾아온 영양실조로 병원을 자주 오갔다. 이후 커티스 음대 시절에는 오른손, 나중에는 양손 모두 아무것도 들 수 없는 신경 증상이 찾아와 다시는 악기를 할 수 없다는 판정을 받았고, 6개월 동안 악기를 잡지 못하는 동안 최나경은 심한 우울증에 시달리기도 했다. 눈물로 지내던 긴 시간 이후 기적적으로 다시 할 수 있게 된 플루트는 최나경이 이전보다 더 맘껏 노래할 수 있게 해 주었고, 그녀의 음악은 깊이를 더했다. 신시내티 심포니에서 활동하던 당시에는 삶에 대한 진정한 의미를 찾아 헤매이다 슬픔에 빠지기를 끊임없이 반복하던 경험, 그리고 꿈에 그리던 음악의 도시 비엔나에서는 어린 동양인 여성수석인 그녀에게 친절하지 않았다. 최나경의 삶은 꿈에 대한 도전, 그리고 그에 따른 수많은 희노애락이 담긴 꽉찬 이야기 보따리라고 해도 과언이 아닐 것이다.

보다 많은 사람들에게 도움이 되고 마음에 위로가 되는 음악을 하고 싶다고 말하는 최나경은 여러 SNS나 웹사이트, 블로그 등을 통해서 연주 영상은 물론이고 연주자의 생활이나 생각, 다이어리 등을 팬들과 공유하고 대화하는 것을 즐긴다. 그녀의 유튜브 채널은 조회수가 260만건에 달하며 페이스북와 인스타그램에서도 끊임없는 사랑을 받고 있다.

이번 2015-2016 시즌의 주요 공연으로는 독일 베를린 필하모니홀에서 베를린 심포니, 스위스 루체른의 KKL홀에서 바덴바덴 필하모닉, 루마니아에서 에네스쿠 필하모닉, 터키 올튼 필하모닉과의 협연을 비롯해 프랑스 파리, 독일 베를린, 오스트리아 아를베르크, 스페인 마드리드, 태국 방콕에서의 리사이틀 일정이 기다리고 있다. 국내에서는 10월에 청주시립교향악단, 12월 서울 예술의전당 제야음악회, 2월 코리안심포니 정기연주회 등의 무대로 고국 팬들을 만나게 될 최나경은, 플루트라는 악기의 고정관념이나 한국인 관악 연주자에 대한 편견을 하나씩 무너뜨리고 있으며, 현재 오스트리아에 거주하고 있다.

Die Star-Flötistin Jasmine Choi wurde im Februar 2015 vom Sinfini Magazin als eine der 10 besten Flötisten der Geschichte gekürt und seit ihren jungen Jahren auf
internationalen Bühnen für ihren satten Ton, technische Brillanz, hervorragende Musikalität und ihre charismatische Bühnenpräsenz anerkannt.

Zudem spürt man bei Choi ihre Offenheit bzgl. neuem Repertoire und verschiedenen Genres.

Von der Korea Times als „die Göttin der Flöte“ hochgelobt, ist Jasmine Choi eine der am meisten gefeierten Flötisten unserer Generation. Nach ihrer Karriere als Associate Principal Flute beim Cincinnati Symphony Orchester und als Prinicipal Flute bei den Wiener Symphonikern widmet sie sich nun ihrer weiteren Laufbahn als Vollzeit - Solistin.

Mit 16 Jahren verlegte Jasmine Choi ihren Lebensmittelpunkt in die Vereinigten Staaten, als sie ein Vollstipendium erhielt, um am „Curtis Institute of Music“ in Philadelphia zu studieren.

Der legendäre Julius Baker nannte sie „eine große Sensation“ - sie studierte bei ihm vier Jahre lang bis zu seinem Tod im Jahr 2003. Jasmine Choi hält einen „Bachelor of Music“ am „Curtis Institute of Music“ und den „Master of Music“ an der „Juilliard School“, wo sie bei Jeffrey Khaner studierte. Außerdem gewann sie den „Philadelphia Orchestra Greenfield“ Wettbewerb, den „Yamaha Young Performing Artists“ Wettbewerb, den „Astral Artists“ Wettbewerb und die „Concerto Competition“ an der „Juilliard School“, wo sie auch später als Solistin für das Saisoneröffnungskonzert des 100-Jahr-Jubiläums der Schule unter der Leitung von James DePreist eingeladen wurde.

Vom „Symphony Magazin“ als eine der „America Emerging Artists“ nominiert, wurde Jasmine Choi in der „Rising Stars“-Serie in der „Carnegie Hall“, in der „Weill Recital Hall“ in Philadelphia und im „Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts“ präsentiert.
Aktuelle Highlights sind Solo-Auftritte in der „Wigmore Hall“ in London, im Wiener Konzerthaus „Schubert-Saal“, in der Hochschule für Musik in Philadelphia und im „Seoul Arts Center“ in Seoul. Des Weiteren ist sie als Solistin im Wiener Musikverein im Goldenen Saal, im Wiener Konzerthaus im Mozart Saal, in der „Disney Hall“ in Los Angeles und in Prag Dvorak Saal/Rudolfinum und im Smetana Saal in Erscheinung getreten.

Viele erfolgreiche Konzerte hat sie als Solistin durchgeführt, unter anderem mit dem Philadelphia Orchestra, dem Cincinnati Symphony Orchester, dem Juilliard Symphony Orchester, den St. Petersburger Philharmonikern, dem Mozarteum Salzburg, dem Czech Philharmonic Chamber und dem Seoul Philharmonic Orchester.

Als Botschafterin der klassischen Musik, performte Choi bei UN Präsident Ban Ki-Moons Einweihungszeremonie in New York, und spielte als Solistin bei der Eröffnung der Bregenzer Festspiele und beim 40 jährigen Jubiläum der National Flute Association in Las Vegas.

Abenteuerlustig in die Erweiterung des Repertoires für Flöte, schrieb Jasmine Choi eigene Arrangements der Violinkonzerte von Mendelssohn und Tschaikowsky, für Saint-Saens Introduktion & Rondo Capriccioso, sowie zahlreiche Sonaten für Violine und Cello.
Ihre Anordnungen des Doppelkonzerts von Bach für zwei Violinen und der Czardas von Monti wurden von „Falls House Press USA“ veröffentlicht.

Sehr aktiv ist sie ebenfalls in der zeitgenössischen klassischen Musikszene, sie gab bei den US-koreanischen Komponisten Solbong Kim und James Ra eigene Werke in Auftrag und führt außerdem äufig die Werke von Isang Yun auf.
Der bekannte Flötist und Komponist Gary Schocker widmete ihr ein Stück mit dem Titel „Winter Jasmine“, in Würdigung ihrer neuen handgemachten 14K Gold-Flöte von David Straubinger.

Der Komponist/Dirigent Mark Laycock schrieb „The Flute Concerto for Jasmine Choi“ für Flöte und Streichorchester, welches in Europa und in den USA unter dem Komponisten selbst aufgeführt wurde. Jasmine Choi spielte außerdem die Weltpremiere der Mozart Variationen von Detlev Glanert für Flöte und Orchester, welche live im ORF übergetragen wurde.

Mit dem Erscheinen von insgesamt fünf Solo-CDs erfüllte Jasmine sich ein ganz persönliches Ziel. Vier davon wurden von Sony Classical herausgegeben, zunächst die Flötenkonzerte von Mozart und danach virtuose Flötenwerke unter dem Titel „Fantasy“. Weitere Werke waren „Claude Bolling Suite“ für Flöte und „Jazz Trio“. Ebenso spielte sie die Mozart-Flötenquartette mit Mitgliedern der Wiener Symphoniker ein und veröffentlichte ihre letzte Solo-CD „The Telemann Files“ mit Hilfe einer Crowdfunding Kampagne.

Highlights in der Saison 2015/16 beinhalten Konzerte mit den Berliner Symphonikern in der Philharmonie Berlin, der Philharmonie Baden-Baden im KKL Luzern, der Korea Symphony für deren Neujahrskonzert in Seoul, der George Enescu Philharmonic in Bucharest, der Olten Philharmonic in Izmir, sowie Recitals in Paris, Berlin, Arlberg, Madrid, Bangkok, Seoul und Bregenz.

Jasmine Choi kommuniziert über die Musik mit ihren Zuhörern und möchte mit der Tradition brechen, dass klassische Musiker nur klassische Musik spielen. Sie sucht nicht das Trennende und genießt es auch Jazz und Pop zu spielen, sowie Filmmusik und Broadway Produktionen. Dabei ist sie immer ganz nahe an ihren Fans, über Facebook, Twitter und YouTube teilt sie beinahe täglich ihr Leben und Ihre Gedanken. Sie gilt als die weltweit erste Flötistin mit über 1.5 Millionen Klicks auf Youtube.
