POSTECH Summer Classical Concert with Maestro Nanse Gum
Many guests visited the POSTECH campus to enjoy a good classical tune on a rainy summer afternoon as POSTECH held its annual classical concert with Maestro Nanse Gum in the Auditorium on Sunday, July 12.
Providing the local community and campus members with an opportunity to enjoy great performances and enrich their cultural experiences, POSTECH has been inviting Maestro Nanse Gum and the Euro-Asian Philharmonic Orchestra every summer since 2009. Maestro Nanse Gum, who is a world-renowned musician, is known as the most beloved Korean conductor and the father of popular classical music in South Korea.
This year, under the theme of “The Carnival of Classic with Maestro Nanse Gum,” the orchestra performed The Carnival of the Animals (Le Carnaval des Animaux) by the French Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saens. The dynamic organization of the piece and instruments’ sounds that mimic different animals captured the audience’s attention. Maestro Nanse Gum’s easy commentary also brought the music much closer to his audience.
Sponsored by KISWIRE Ltd., the concert was open to the public without fee.
