About The Event

This special holiday concert is FREE to attend! This event is co-sponsored by Bayside Historical Society and Korean Community Services.

G-Hwaja performs creative music through a collaboration of Western and Korean traditional instruments, melding disparate tones and styles. The group seeks to express the emotions of the times in a dramatic way by utilizing the uniquely expressive characteristics of Korean traditional music — particularly its sense of excitement known as Hueng and the bittersweet sense of grief known as Han — to deliver familiar music with new emotional dimensions. G-Hwaja strives to popularize Korean traditional music by delivering a dynamic and vivid image of Korean to the modern world. Since its creation, G-Hwaja had its first performance at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.

Performers:

  • Junghee Oh : Gayageum Byeong-chang, Vocal
  • You Shin Kim : Keyboard, Composition
  • Grace Leekyung Kang : Haegeum
  • Song Eun Shin : 25 Strings Gayageum

The evening's program will include: 

  1. SOKS : Sounds of Korean Soul composed by G-Hwaja You Shin Kim
  2. Haegeum Solo “Beautiful Memory”

  5. Korean Folk Song “Song of the Birds”
