Day 1 – Sookmyung University

Today, March 17, 2015, marked the Indiana University Chamber Orchestra’s first day in Seoul, South Korea. The ensemble visited Sookmyung Women’s University where they and members of the Sookmyung Armonia Program gave back-to-back performances for one another. Both orchestras gave wonderful performances, and it was a day to remember for many reasons. Please see images from the day, captured by Jacobs School of Music students, below:
