Choir Travels to South Korea
Apr 05, 2011The Concordia Choir will spend May traveling and performing in South Korea, which has taken a leading role in the advancement of choral music into the 21st century.
Members of the choir left Monday.
"I'm personally excited because it's our first tour to South Korea and because of the cultural interchange with the number of impressive choirs in which we’ll be working," Dr. René Clausen says.
The choir will perform "Me-Na-Ri" for the composer, Hyo-Won-Woo, who is one of the country's leading composers of contemporary music and has been the composer-in-residence for the Incheon City Chorale since 1999. The choir also will collaborate with several professional and university choirs.
"Traveling abroad is valuable as it is, but sharing our musical gifts with the people of South Korea will be worth more than I can imagine," says Chris Banken '13, Blaine, Minn.
