King debuted at Carnegie Hall in January 2018 in Marilyn Horne’s The Song Continues, performing in masterclasses taught by Horne, Graham Johnson, and Renée Fleming. He returned to Carnegie Hall the following year for SongStudio, under the leadership of Renée Fleming.
King has performed as piano soloist with the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra and the LeMoyne College String Ensemble. He has previously served as a staff coach at the Manhattan School of Music and New York University.
