The 10th Annual Korean Music Symposium

When I first returned to Korea as an adult, I brought back a pile of Korean traditional music CDs. As I was enjoying the sounds of the gayageum (what many refer to as the “Korean zither”), my mom walked in and said, ‘Why are you listening to your dad’s music?”

(This is just an image of some women after a performance at a temple in Seoul.)

If you live in Los Angeles, you can enjoy some free concerts of “my dad’s music” at UCLA and other areas of Southern California as part of the 10th Annual Korean Music Symposium. Starting Wednesday, February 9th, there will be 45 musicians and scholars from Korea performing and lecturing on traditional music with a focus on the songs of Korea.
