Hyo Kang to Launch Annual Music Festival in South Korea
Hyo Kang, artistic director of the International Sejong Soloists string ensemble and a faculty member at the Aspen Music Festival and School, plans to launch an annual music festival in Pyeongchang, South Korea in June 2004. Kang, a violinist who is modeling the event after Aspen, hopes to attract world-class classical performers. The festival is the brainchild of Jin-sun Kim, governor of the Gangwon Province. New Yorkers got a taste of what the event might hold earlier this summer at a dinner and concert held at the Asia Society and Museum in Manhattan.
