Korean Music Performance on Monday
Sumi Kim, pansori singer and educator, will be performing on Monday, Feb. 11, at 3 p.m. in Auerbach Auditorium (Hillyer 125).
Her presentation is part of the World Music Survey course. She will be accompanied by Dr. Ju-Yong Ha, playing changgo and puk.
The performance is free and open to all. For more information, contact Associate Professor Anthony Rauche at email@example.com.
Sumi Kim (b.1972) is a singer, scholar and educator of pansori who has studied with some of the most celebrated pansori masters, including Master Jang Woljungseon (1925-1998), Master Kim Il-gu (b.1949), and Master Sung Uhyang (b.1933). Upon mastering the performance traditions of her teachers—each of whom represented the different lineages of the Eastern School, Western School and the River and Mountain School—Ms. Kim began to develop her own style and unique vocal timbre, combining the elements of the three lineages.
She also has been interested in creating new pansori music and stories, addressing the tastes of new contemporary audiences. Most recently she released her own CD with an accompanying illustrated book of her newly created pansori for children, The Interesting Village. She has created for the first time a new course, “Creative Pansori,” at Seoul National University, where she has taught for the last three years.
