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.
As part of this varied line-up, the KCCUK will present two-piano recital programmes from The Passionate Keyboard: “The Duo” and “Chopin and Chopin”. These will be followed by highlights from the Sejong Chamber Series 2019, including performances by Ensemble OPUS and the Sejong Soloists.
For four weeks, starting on 18th June on our YouTube channel, we will present four performances by Korea’s leading “gugak” (national traditional music) artists, including Park Jiha, who was introduced to us at the K-Music Festival. The performances were organised by the National Gugak Centre and they were previously broadcast live online in March this year.
