Description

The first part of the concert will feature two of Korea’s foremost traditional performers. Gayageum (zither) master Byung Ki Hwang and choreographer/dancer and National Intangible Treasure in Buddhist dance Aeju Lee, will be joined by other traditional Korean musicians Jeong Seung Kim (daegeum-bamboo flute) and Woong Sik Kim (changgo-percussion) in a program of traditional works and music by Byung Ki Hwang.

The second part, Ritual III is a collaborative work between composer Hi Kyung Kim, multimedia artist Elliot Anderson, Korean dancer Aeju Lee, and creative consultant Tandy Beal. San Francisco’s Ensemble Parallele (percussionist William Winant, violinist William Barbini, cellist Jean-Michel Fonteneau, and clarinetist John Sackett), conducted by Nicole Paiement, will be joined by Korean musicians (Jeung Seung Kim on daegeum and Woong Sik Kim on percussion) to perform the third in the series of Hi Kyung Kim’s Ritual pieces. These works deal with the topics of death and rebirth, the soul’s journey after death, and transformation of the spirit.
