Mr. Won Hyung Joon is a world-renowned South Korean violinist and peace activist working toward an inter-Korean orchestra comprising musicians from North and South Korea. Mr. Won recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on November 2, 2018, with the DPRK’s Korea Performing Art Exchange Society, which falls under the country’s Ministry of Culture. The first historical joint performance will be held at the Jeju Arts Center in South Korea on December 30, 2018. As the founder of Lindenbaum Orchestra, Mr. Won has been working on the prospect of creating an inter-Korean youth orchestra for the past nine years. In this special event sponsored by the GWIKS, Mr. Won will first perform Beethoven's Romance No.2, op.50, Estrellita (My Little Star) by Ponce, and Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen. After the recital, Mr. Won will share his vision of how to reconcile differences between the Koreas through the power of music and build trust through music diplomacy in achieving harmony and peace on the Korean peninsula. The evening will conclude with a short Q&A with the audience.
