As a lockdown-friendly alternative to our temporarily suspended House Concert programme, we will be uploading performances of various genres from Korea – including our usual classical ensemble performances - to the KCCUK YouTube channel.

With many of us now confined to our homes and relying on remote online entertainment, we have found a way to bring a selection of classical ensemble concerts, dance performances and traditional Korean music performances into your home.

Our Home Theatre programme features performances hosted by Korea’s representative venue for classical music, the Sejong Centre, as well as the National Gugak Center and Gugak FM.

As part of this varied line-up, the KCCUK will present two piano recital programmes from The Passionate Keyboard: “The Duo” (30 April and 7 May 2020) and “Chopin and Chopin” (14 and 21 May). These will be followed by highlights from the Sejong Chamber Series 2019, including performances by Ensemble OPUS (28 May) and the Sejong Soloists (4 June).
