Carson, CA – Musicians from the Seoul Arts High School (Seoul Yego) will be in concert in the University Theatre at California State University, Dominguez Hills, on Thursday, July 1, at 8 p.m. Admission is free.

The Seoul Yego Youth Symphony Orchestra is considered the official representative of the Seoul Arts High School, recognized as one of Korea’s most celebrated schools for young musicians, dancers and visual artists. The orchestra is scheduled to perform “Symphony Number 2” by Serge Rachmaninoff; overture from the opera, “Russlan and Ludmilla” by Mikhail Glinka; overture from the opera, “William Tell,” by Gioacchino Rossini and traditional Korean songs.

Seoul Yego High School has been called one of the country’s finest assets. Established in 1953, Seoul Yego has graduated students who have performed across the world.
The musicians of Seoul Yego Youth Symphony Orchestra first performed as a group in 1972. Over the years, they have performed to audiences in Japan, Italy, Taiwan, England and the United States. In 1987, they won first prize for chamber music at the Aberdeen International Music Festival in Scotland and were invited to return in 1994.

In 1992, Seoul Yego performed during the opening concert at the Okayama Philharmonic Concert Hall in Japan. Later in January 1997, they performed in San Jose and made their debut at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. In 2003, they performed during the 47th annual concert at the Seoul Arts Center.

Maestro Eun-Seoug Park directs the Seoul Yego Youth Symphony Orchestra. Recognized as one of Korea’s leading directors, Park guides the orchestra with a blend of frankness and refinement in his musical style. Among his many accomplishments, Park was honored by the President of Korea in 1990 and chosen as the “Musician of the Year” by the Korean Music Association in 1991.
