Connections: South Korea

The sounds and sights of traditional Korean music, dance, and costume filled the PAC on Thursday, April 13. Representing The New York Korean Performing Arts Center, Sounds of Korea introduced and entertained our students to the two stringed haegeum, the patterns of the Jingo buknori drum dance, and the beautiful buchaechum known as the fan dance. Our students were even invited onto the stage to try replicating the rhythmic and dynamic drum sequences.
