Cast
ConductorKim Young-eon
A graduate of the Seoul National University’s College of Music, Kim majored in conducting at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy” in Leipzig. During his time in Leipzig, Kim was the student chosen by Fabio Luisi, a globally renowned music director of the New York Metropolitan Opera, in a seminar offered to students studying conducting where he took the baton for a performance of Bela Bartok’s Divertimento for String Orchestra. He served as the permanent conductor of the Kassel University orchestra.
He was the conductor for the opening performance of the 2006 Tongyeong International Music Festival and debuted in the same year with the Bucheon Philharmonic Orchestra after being chosen through the young conductor audition program. He has overseen many contemporary music performances in Bucheon Philharmonic Orchestra’s 21st Century Music Festival performance series. In 2007 and 2008, he was invited to take up the baton in the Tchaikovsky ballet piece “The Nutcracker” that was jointly hosted by the Sungnam Philharmonic Orchestra and Seoul Ballet Theatre. In the following year, he led the Bucheon Philharmonic Orchestra in the Anton Bruckner series and presided over Symphony No. 1 along with several regular concerts.
The music theater work “Rose” premiered in 2006 in conjunction with the TIMF Ensemble, the permanent musical performing organization in Tongyeong International Music Festival. “Rose” was invited to the 2009 Seoul Performing Arts Festival. The following work, “Echo,” premiered at the Tongyeong International Music Festival in 2011. Since then, Kim has worked together with the TIMF Ensemble to put on stage the works of contemporary Korean composers like Yun I-sang, Kang Suk-hi, and Paik Byung-dong. In the 10th anniversary performance for the Contemporary Music Ensemble SORI, Kim surprised the enthusiasts of classical music and critics alike with his masterful lead of Hans Zender’s “Schuberts Winterreise: Eine komponierte Interpretation.” He has been featured as a guest conductor on different stages as well with Wonju Philharmonic Orchestra, SOLIALL Philharmonic Orchestra, CAMERATA MADRI, Seoul Tutti Ensemble, and Ensemble “Eclat.”
Furthermore, he served as a conductor at Konkuk University, Kyungwon University, Mokwon University, and Sunhwa Arts High School orchestras and as a lecturer at Seoul National University, Korea National University of Arts, and Sungshin Women’s University. Since 2005, he has also led the Seoul Civic Symphony Orchestra (formerly Teheran Valley Symphony Orchestra), the foremost amateur orchestra in Korea, in an effort to expand the basis for the popularization of classical music in Korea. He is now serving as the vice permanent conductor of the Gwangju Symphony Orchestra and as an adjunct professor at Gachon University and Jeonbuk National University.
CountertenorJeong Min-ho
Countertenor Jeong Min-ho is a graduate of Chung-Ang University’s vocalist program (under Shin Dong-ho and Kim Jung-hyun) and the graduate school of the same university in choral conducting (under Yoon Hak-Won). He decided to switch to a countertenor during his studies in Yonsei University’s early music program (under Park Seung-hee) for his love of Baroque music.
He debuted as a soloist in J. S. Bach’s Mass in B minor with Masaaki Suzuki, a renowned name in Baroque music, and performed numerous religious works from the Baroque era such as Bach Cantatas and Passions, Mass in B minor, and Handel’s Messiah. Jeong’s next move was to study at The Royal Conservatory in the Hague under the distinguished tutelage of Rita Dams, Peter Kooij, Robin Blaze, Jill Feldmann, Pascal Bertin, and Dorothee Mields and to graduate with distinction.
He worked with Michael Chance to put the opera Giasone on stage and with Peter Djikstra of Nederlands Kamerkoor on Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and St. John Passion and performed many Bach Passions and Cantatas in the Netherlands.
He cooperated with renowned musicians such as Peter Kooij, Sigiswald Kuijken, and Alexander Weimann, participated in Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki’s European tour, and appeared in Bachfest Leipzig. His opera debut came with the Dutch National Opera Academy (DNOA) performance of Handel’s Radamisto series, playing the title role in the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Netherlands. Another appearance of note was his role as a soloist in Croatia’s Varaždin Baroque Evening Festival where he performed with the Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra under the leadership of Winfried Toll.
In Korea, he has put on annual performances with The National Chorus of Korea, Suwon City Chorale, Anyang Civic Chorale, and Wonju Civic Chorale. Last year, he was invited to the Music in Pyeong Chang and Hanwha Classic with soprano Seo Ye-ri.

Currently, Park is continuing his work with Passions in Europe, serving as a guest vocalist with Nederlands Kamerkoor, a vocal coach in Collegium Vocale Seoul, and a member of the Bachsolisten Seoul.
Gwangju Symphony Orchestra
A symphony orchestra writing a new history of Classical music in Korea
Founded in 1976, Gwangju Symphony Orchestra presents more than 70 in-depth and high-quality performances each year. The orchestra appointed Hong Seo-kwon, the first Korean designated as the principal conductor (Erste Kappelmesiter) of an Opera Theater in Austria, as the 13th and the present Artistic Director in April 2021. Since then, the group has sold out most of its performances, taking the culture city Gwangju by storm.
Under the young and energetic leadership of its conductor, the orchestra’s passionate and sensitive members have woven together a remarkable harmony on stage. They are joined by globally renowned artists like Paul Lewis, Stephen Hough, Alexei Volodin, Angela Gheorghiu, Paik Kun-woo, Cho Seong-jin, Son Yeol-eum, Sunwoo Ye-kwon, and Lim Yun-chan.
A symphony orchestra with a unique repertoire
Gwangju Symphony Orchestra’s repertoire caters to lovers of classical music of all backgrounds and preferences, ranging from the regular concerts for enthusiasts to the GSO Orium Concert series for beginners, the chamber music series for a more in-depth and intimate look at the musicians’ harmony and expression, the Kids’ Classic programs for the whole family, and the special performances that break the preconceptions of classical music.
Other programs like the “Concert Talk” program, where the Artistic Director engages directly with the audience on Regular Concert performances, the “Master Class” programs for next-gen musicians, and the “Visiting Orchestra” programs that bring classical music to schools and culturally marginalized groups within Gwangju-Jeonnam region complete the orchestra’s dedication to education.
A symphony orchestra moving toward the world
Gwangju Symphony Orchestra’s abilities were recognized through its invitation to the world’s largest Orchestra Festival and renowned Korean festivals like the World Orchestra Series of Daegu Concert House. The group’s cooperation with Korea National Opera’s “La Boheme” and special performances in Tongyeong International Music Hall has led the observers to remark that the Gwangju Symphony Orchestra is “one of the leading forces in the Korean classical music scene.”
The orchestra’s international performances at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, Prague Smetana Hall, and Linz Brucknerhaus of Austria have all been received with great praise. In the upcoming year of 2023, the Gwangju Symphony Orchestra plans to prepare for performances commemorating the 40th anniversary of the sister cities agreement between Gwangju and San Antonio, Texas, and the 70th anniversary of the Korean Armistice Agreement under invitation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Korea and the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Houston.
