Event Notes

× CelloGayageum McIntyre Hall Presents Friday, February 16 7:30pm

Tickets: Reserved Seating $33 - $43 CYO Subscription, Student and Senior Discounts

CelloGayageum was founded in 2016 by an Austrian cellist Sol Daniel Kim and Korean Gayageum player Dayoung Yoon. The inspiration to create this intercultural duo came from the “Pavillon of Unification” located in Berlin, a city shaped by a tragic history of war, division and reunion.The duo was awarded with several prizes such as the ‘Soorim Culture Prize’ given by the Soorim Cultural Foundation in 2018 and ‘Artist of the year’ of the Jeongdong Theater in Seoul in 2020.

The co-existence of the West and the Far East, which is also reflected by the musical and cultural background of both artists, acts like a catalyst and enables the musicians to discover new ways to make and create music. Sol Daniel Kim and Dayoung Yoon are constantly searching and experimenting with the goal to combine the characteristics of their respective musical cultures and instruments, finding the right balance and forming a harmonic symbiosis in sound and style. It is their goal and passion to not only perform music to a broad audience, but also serve as cultural ambassadors presenting the traditional music culture of South Korea to the whole world. All their pieces are original and written by the two artists.

Join us for a pre-concert talk 45 minutes prior to the concert.

This engagement of CelloGayageum is made possible in part through the Performing Arts Global Exchange program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
