27 August 2014 – Philippine Ambassador to South Korea Raul S. Hernandez joined diplomats and other VIPs in singing five songs at the 4th regular concert of an orchestra for orphans and disadvantaged youth,attended by an audience of 3,000 at the largest arts and cultural complex in Seoul.

 

The Diplomats’ Choir joined the Sejong CEO Choir, Ami 24 Choir, KASA Chorus and La Luce Choir on August 13 in performing “I Have a Dream,” “I Will Follow Him,” and “Va Pensiero” as well as Korean songs “Keum Gang San” and “Arirang,” at the Main Auditorium of the Sejong Center for Performing Arts on Gwanghwamun Plaza.

 

The concert was headlined by the Sejong Dream Tree Orchestra, which held a 10-day music camp for 100 Korean children from orphanages in Seoul and other low-income families, with rehearsals held at Seoul City Music University in Gangchon, Gyeonggi Province, and at the Sejong Center. It was assisted by the embassies of Uruguay, Panama, Ecuador and Mexico.

 

The two-hour performance, which was boosted by six young Latin American musicians, including three members of the Youth Orchestra of the Americas, featured a repertoire of Latin American chamber music, and pieces by well-known composers Franz Schubert, Georges Bizet and Giuseppe Verdi.

 

The Sejong Center began the Dream Tree Harmony Orchestra in September 2010 to contribute to the development of music education of young people from modest backgrounds.   END
