Despite K-pop and K-dramas going global, classical singers rarely know Korean art songs. NVC Voice faculty, Minkyung Lee, soprano, will invite Stella Bokyung Yoon to perform Duo Recital: The Art of Italian Opera Arias & Korean Art Songs. Gagok, as a Korean art song, is a vocal piece in the style of Western art songs like German Lied or French mélodieThe modern Korean art song developed in 1920 as a new vocal genre. Soprano Stells Bokyung Kim will perform dazzling Korean art songs by Yeonjun Kim, Dunam Choi, and Dongjin Kim. Dr. Minkyung Lee will introduce exquisite solos and duets of new repertoires by Hyogeun Kim. In addition, the two sopranos will collaborate on the program drawing inspiration from the Romantic era’s distinct vocal music composers, Vincenzo Bellini, Gaetano Donizetti, Giacomo Puccini, and more.

Dr. Yoon was recently seen as Valerie/Violetta in Robert Hatten’s Compassion (world premier).
