Korean choir featured
Missoula choral ensemble Dolce Canto presents a joint concert with the Ulsan Metropolitan Chorus of South Korea, directed by Dr. In-Gi Min, on Tuesday, June 6, at 7:30 PM at the UM Music Recital Hall at the University of Montana in Missoula. Doors open at 6:45 PM. Tickets may be purchased at Fact & Fiction, Rockin’ Rudy’s, or via the choir’s website. Cost: $18 General Admission / $10 Students.
The program will include Western choral music alongside new works by Korean composers and arrangements of traditional Korean folk songs. Each group will perform separately, and the concert will culminate with a joint performance. This special concert completes a circle of cultural exchange, as the two choirs performed together in Korea during Dolce Canto’s tour of South Korea in April 2016.
The Ulsan Metropolitan Chorus is a 52-member professional ensemble founded in 1993, and is considered one of the finest choirs in Korea. This world-class choir has performed numerous times internationally, serving as a featured choir during the Saar Music Festival in Germany in 2009 and 2011, and as an invited headliner during the 2014 American Choral Directors Association Central Division Conference in Des Moines, Iowa. Dr. In-Gi Min was appointed as the artistic director and principal conductor of the choir in 2015. Under his direction, the UMC has been recognized by critics as “heart touching, with a beautiful, flawless sound” and “the perfect choral ensemble whose exquisite blend and sophisticated harmony captivates souls.”
