PyeongChang Festival OrchestraOrchestra
PyeongChang Festival Orchestra Orchestra
Until recently, classical musicians in Korea tended to commit themselves to the path to becoming a soloist. As a result, a host of solo performers of exceptional caliber emerged, while the number of orchestras and ensembles of the same caliber remains relatively small. The paradigm is slowly shifting, however; winning a seat in a prestigious orchestra is regarded as an equally impressive accomplishment as winning a prize at an international competition. The festival orchestra at PyeongChang Music Festival is a symbolic attempt at contributing to this shift.
The festival orchestra, now setting its first sail to the world stage, embodies the concept of “homecoming;” Korean musicians working as members of renowned orchestras abroad form the core of the orchestra. Korean-born musicians of international stature return home to create a particularly poignant harmony. Joining them will be cosmopolitan musicians who have made Korea their second home, creating a push-and-pull force that will catapult music making in Korea and the status of the PyeongChang Festival to a new height.
