About Jung-Min:

Amy moved to Cleveland in 2008, one week before she started playing with TCO.  Cleveland proved a dream destination for Amy as it is here she met the love of her life, TCO oboist Frank Rosenwein, who she says is the most thoughtful person.  They live in their dream house in Cleveland Heights with their cocker spaniel, Sophie, and enjoy spending time together and with friends, taking walks, making music together, and enjoying a favorite pastry from On The Rise Bakery.  Amy and Frank love all kinds of culinary delights, and when in Cleveland they enjoy Club Isabella, L’Albatros, Fire, Le Petit Triangle Cafe, Stone Oven and Luna.  Amy enjoys both playing and listening to classical music, but also listens to jazz and occasionally Korean pop when she’s feeling nostalgic.  In her spare time Amy enjoys a variety of activities including yoga, learning French and about French wine, cooking, jogging/walking around Shaker Lakes with her dog and is always planning the next vacation.
