The 18th Emirates International Peace Music Festival will be held by the Korean Cultural Centre in the United Arab Emirates in collaboration with the Emirates Youth Symphony Orchestra (EYSO).
The EYSO, which comprises youth aged 5 to 20 from various nationalities, holds an annual music festival to provide opportunities for young musicians with talent in classical music to show their skills. This year, Seol Yoeun, who is receiving a lot of attention as a violin prodigy not only in Korean broadcasting but also around the world, will participate in the concert.
Seol Yoeun will perform Vivaldi's Concerto for Violin & String Orchestra in G Minor (Allegro), Variations on the theme of Corelli – Kreisler Corelli, Sonata for Violin & Piano in D Major (Allegro) - W. A. Mozart, Etude-Caprice No. 4, op. 18 - H. Wieinawski.
Nam Chan-woo, Director of the Korean Cultural Centre, said,
"I am happy to hold a special performance this year with the EYSO, which consists of young multinational artists who value cultural diversity. In particular, it is more meaningful to be with gifted musician Seol Yoeun, who is drawing attention as a promising violinist of Korea's future. I hope that more cultural exchanges and cooperation will continue with the EYSO with various and outstanding young artists in the UAE."
Kim Young-kwang, Manager of the Korean Cultural Centre, who organised the event, said,
"Korean culture is often thought of as simply K-pop, but in fact, Korea produces many excellent classical musicians worldwide. I was surprised that Yoeun's performance, which I encountered by chance, was as delicate and talented as adult performers. We planned the event because we wanted to introduce Korean gifted violinists to the audience in the UAE as well as provide opportunities for various musicians to perform together."
The EYSO and Seol Yoeun's performances will be held admission free at Sharjah Performing Arts Academy (SPAA) on Saturday, 22nd October, and at Dubai Ignite School Auditorium on Sunday 23rd October. Both events will start at 7:00.
