Korean Performing Arts Organizations


The National Center for Korean Traditional Performing Arts (founded and operated by the government) has over 170 performers and dancers, while the Korean Folk Performing Arts Center in Namwon in Chollabuk-do province has approximately 100 performers. The former primarily organizes performances, promotes educational activities related to traditional performing arts and publishes related research. Its performances include regular annual performances, domestic tours, international tours and participation in national events. Its vast repertoire includes Chong-ak, Minsogak and dance, and ranges from classical works to more modern productions. At 5:00 p.m. every Saturday, it offers regular performances, all of which feature the main genres of Korean traditional music.

At present, more than six high schools specializing in traditional music have been established. In addition, there are almost twenty traditional music orchestras active in both Seoul and regional cities. In response to popular demand, prominent newspapers are also publishing numerous articles on traditional music in their cultural sections. Regional organizations have also joined the trend, offering various classes and lectures on traditional music. Lastly, there are over 500 small and large-scale, traditional music societies and institutes throughout the country.
