Performance Facilities


The National Theater, the Sejong Cultural Center, and the Seoul Arts Center are the capital's major performing arts centers. The Seoul Arts Center is the largest performance complex in the country, housing a separate hall for orchestral performances and recitals. It also has an opera house, the National Center for Korean Traditional Performing Arts, in addition to other art facilities, such as a gallery for calligraphy and a drama theatre. The Korean National University of the Arts is also located in the complex.

 

Music Education

There are five first-class arts high schools that provide training for talented young people: Seoul National University, Yonsei University, Hanyang University, and Ewha Womans University, each of which has its own college of music. These universities have trained many of Korea's top musicians who have since contributed greatly to the development of Korea's musical scene and education.

In 1993, the School of Music at the Korean National University of the Arts was established under a presidential decree. The school incorporated both the European conservatory-style and American university style educational system in order to promote and enhance Korea's music training program. As the leading music school in the country, the school's faculty is composed of a host of well-known professors of music from around the world, including the United States, Germany, Russia and Hungary, as well as noted Korean music teachers. The school's students have already received top prizes from a number of international competitions; they have also performed occasionally on the international stage.

There are currently 125 arts high schools and music colleges in Korea, and 49 music management companies, 27 recording and publishing companies, 18 chamber ensembles, 10 opera groups, 31 orchestras, and 55 music performance facilities.
