Event Details:

The Seoul National University (SNU) New Music Ensemble presents a mixture of old and new in their eclectic performance. The ensemble consists of a youthful string quartet, seasoned performers, and Korean traditional instrumentation. Featuring the harmonies and textures of the European classical tradition and the microtonal shadings and complex rhythms of Korean tradition, the performance promises to be a rich experience for all who attend. The repertoire will draw on the music of Korea's court and shamanic ritual tradition as well as the romantic traditions of Europe. The ensemble will perform, as well, new and experimental works that highlight the beauty of both traditions, truly representing the richness of music performance in Korea today. This concert is free and open to the public.
