During the days of Korean culture in Bulgaria, the Hunyang choral society will present songs composed by living Korean classics along with arias by the most celebrated European composers such as Verdi and Rossini. To give a special touch of the concert, the Korean singers have also chosen a Bulgarian song by composer Todor Popov. A Bulgarian soloist (tenor Tsvetan Tsvetkov) will join his fellow musicians from Saul in presenting the piece. "The song was chosen as we were fascinated with the patriotic feeling it coveys. It very much resembles one of the Korean songs on the agenda - Song for the Native Land," conductor Cho Eun-Hi-Suzana who leads the choral society said. She noted that Hunyang singers have sought advice and assistance in selecting the pieces and soloists from renowned Bulgarian musicians. Christina Angelakova, Sofia Opera director, was among them. The Hunyang choral society has more than hundred members and has performed in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Japan. Their Sofia concert is to take place October 11 at Bulgaria Hall.
