Nur-Sultan hosted concert of Seoul City Orchestra

Kazakhstan and Korea celebrate the 10th anniversary of their strategic partnership this year.

In honor of the anniversary, a concert of the Seoul City Orchestra of Traditional Music took place in Nur-Sultan.

The Seoul Orchestra first performed on the local stage two years ago in Almaty. The musicians took part in a gala concert dedicated to the 80th anniversary of Koreans in Kazakhstan.

Among other things, currently, South Korea is one of the 10 priority countries for Kazakhstan in terms of the development of trade, investment and technological cooperation. 

“The relations between Kazakhstan and Korea developed in various fields such as economics, politics, culture after the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the countries in 1992. The Fresh Wind program of the renewed cooperation addresses new areas such as digitalization, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, medicine, IT technology and agriculture. Kazakhstan can learn more about Korea due to these events, which then draws our cultures closer,” said Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Kazakhstan, Kim Dae-Sik.

The Seoul City Orchestra was founded in 1965. During this time, the world-famous ensemble held over two thousand performances in Europe and Asia.

Today, the famous orchestra includes 40 musicians. Their goal is to recreate, popularize, and distribute Korean traditional music throughout the world.
