Korean students bringing traditional arts to AUM on Aug. 29
Three performing groups of students from Keimyung University in South Korea will bring the Korean Performing Arts Gala, a taste of traditional Korean arts, to the Auburn Montgomery campus on Wednesday, Aug. 29, from 11:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. in Theatre AUM. The gala is free and open to the public.
The program will include performances by Keimyung's Traditional Dance Team and the university's Taekwondo Demonstration Team. The dance team, which includes students and alumni, endeavors to preserve and develop Korean dance. Performances will include the traditional Bamboo Fan Dance and exhilarating Korean drumming.
The Taekwondo Demonstration Team conducts more than 50 demonstrations annually around the world. Considered one of South Korea's best Taekwondo demonstration teams, 58 of its members over the years have been selected to their national Taekwondo team. In 2008, President George W. Bush awarded the demonstration team a special commendation.
The Keimyung University String Quartet will kick off the program. Composed of senior students selected from the Keimyung Chamber Ensemble, the quartet will perform music from Grieg's String Quartet No. 1 in G Minor.
