Er-Gene Kahng navigates the hyphenated identity of Korean + American. She aims to explore ways contemporary American classical music can intersect with, and highlight, forgotten narratives of the past and thus shape the musical values of the present and future.

She currently serves as Full Professor of Violin and Head of Strings at the University of Arkansas and is a former Wolfson Fellow at Cambridge University in Cambridge, UK. She serves as Concertmaster of Fort Smith Symphony and Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra, and is a member of the new music group, Khemia Ensemble.
