Founded in 1983, Koreaâ€™s Suwon Civic Chorale has been hailed as a â€˜world-class choral ensembleâ€™ bringing forth premiere harmonies. Since its formation, the group has staged 115 regular performances and over 800 tours, concerts and media appearances which have delighted the citizens of Suwon City, Korea. Now, the group is broadening its stage to include a global audience, and in the process continues to foster Suwon as an international city of music.
The Suwon Civic Chorale has served as cultural ambassadors in Africa (Uganda) after an official invitation by the Kampala Capital City, Makerere University, and the African Institute of Music in August 2011. Critics praised the performance raving, “The harmony of Suwon Civic Chorale was heart touching and sounded beautifully. The quality of sound was flawless and well-orchestrated. The perfect ensemble and blending and the exquisite and sophisticated harmony were marvelous enough to captivate souls.”
This year, the Suwon Civic Chorale celebrates its 30th anniversary with a tour of the United States launching October 2013. In addition to their appearance on the 2013 Distinguished Concerts International Series (DCINY), the group will perform at Yale University and several Korean Churches throughout New York, Washington DC and Philadelphia.
