June Han is hailed as a “true and tasteful harpist… [with] exceptionally varied phrasing and a surprising yet innate sense of timing” by the Concert Review Magazine at her debut recital in Carnegie Hall.

As an orchestral musician, she has collaborated with Orchestre de Paris, the Kirov Opera Orchestra, the Mariinsky Orchestra, New York City Opera, and frequently performs with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, and the Metropolitan Opera. She has appeared as a solo artist with the Durham-Oshawa Symphony Orchestra, the Colonial Symphony, and the Aspen Young Artist Orchestra. Han has been a guest artist in summer music festivals such as Santa Fe, Norfolk, OK Mozart, Skaneateles, Moab, Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival, and Music from Angel Fire. She has collaborated with distinguished musicians, namely the Orion Quartet, the Shanghai Quartet, the Jupiter Quartet, the Johannes Quartet, Tara Helen O’Connor, Lucy Shelton, Tony Arnold, and Susan Narucki.

Han holds a Premier Prix in Harp and Chamber Music from Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, a Master of Music and Artist Diploma from Yale School of Music, and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from The Juilliard School.
