2005 POSCO Campus Symphony Festival Concert took
place at the Centennial Hall on May 10. Sponsored by Posco, a Korean steel
company, 2005 Posco Campus Symphony Festival is being held at several
universities throughout the year.
At Yonsei Univ., this event was held as a
part of its 120th anniversary celebration. Conducted by maestro Nanse Gum, Kim
Young-ho (Prof. of Dept. of Inst. Music), the Euro-Asian Philharmonic played two
pieces, one by Grieg and the other by Tchaikovsky. Before each piece was played,
maestro Gum Nan-se took time to explain to the audience about the piece. He also
talked about the manner that the audience should know when attending a classical
music concert specifically mentioning when to clap and when not to. "I really
liked the friendly way maestro Gum Nan-se explained the music to us, which made
the atmosphere of the whole concert very light and comfortable for all," said
Lee Seung-jin (Fresh., Area of Social Science).
2005 Posco Campus Symphony
Festival will continue in various colleges until November of this year.
