Every Wednesday from 12.10pm to 12.50pm until June 28th, you might want to take a lunch stroll to the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History (especially for those of you who work near Gwanghwamun). On the outside stage of the museum, musical performances of a wide genre will take place. From A cappella to folk bands and jazz to pop-opera, it will be the perfect opportunity to bring out a sandwich, sit on the beautiful gardens under the spring sun, and watch some artistic performances.
Every third Saturday of each month between March and November, the lobby of the Seoul Museum of History will be transformed into a concert hall. The 2017 Talent Sharing Concert will showcase a theme, with the first one being ‘Music of the World: Spring in Rome’. The performances will include commentaries, a cappella and interactive programs for all to enjoy. The event is open to all for free and will run from 2pm to 3pm.
Gogung Concerts, also known as the Royal Palace Concerts, are a series of traditional Korean musical performances happening inside the confinements of two of the main Palaces of Seoul, Gyeongbokgung and Changgyeonggung. At Gyeongbokgung, the series of concerts will take place once during the day (3.30pm – 4.10pm) at Jagyeongjeon’s Flower Wall (residence of the Queen Mother) and once at night (8.00pm – 8.50pm) at Sujeongjeon Hall (former royal research institute in the 15th century). At Changgyeonggung Palace, evening concerts will be hosted at Tongmyeongjeon Hall (the King’s bedroom). The palatial mise en scene will be fantastically lit up, adding a dramatic effect you won’t be able to experience anywhere else in the world. These shows will be a treat for your eyes and ears for sure.
