JEONJU CIVIC CHORALE
In early October we welcome to Zlín an outstanding group of singers from the South Korean city of Jeonju. The choir, formed back in 1966, presents a varied and fascinating programme of both European and South Korean choral music, including a Czech connection in the form of an arrangement of an original aria by the Brno-born composer Erich Korngold. But our Jeonju Civic Chorale’s presentation is by no means a singing-only affair, because it features musical accompaniment with authentic South Korean instruments, plus a display of their traditional costume.
The Jeonju Civic Chorale have been performing together for more than half a century during which time they have made a name for themselves as top-class and exceptionally gifted performers whose reputation extends well beyond the continent of Asia, with great public and critical acclaim under their choral director Cheol Kim more than ten years now and a whole series of awards to their credit. So tonight’s unique programme of music has all the makings of an artistic and visual spectacle you won’t want to miss!
