Dmitrij Kitajenko to conduct at the Pyeongchang Music Festival

One of the highlights of Korea's iconic Pyeongchang Music Festival 2018 will be the concert with the local Festival Orchestra conducted by Dmitrij Kitajenko on Saturday 28 July 2018. Yeol Eum Son will be the soloist in Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto. After the interval, Maestro Kitajenko will conduct Piotr Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony.

The Pyeongchang Music Festival & School (formerly known as Great Mountains Music Festival & School) is one of the Asia's foremost classical music festivals. It is held annually in Pyeongchang, the city of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Launched by Professor Hyo Kang of the Juilliard School in 2004 and currently led by cellist Myung-wha Chung and violinist Kyung-wha Chung, the festival brings in globally acclaimed musicians, music professors, artistically talented students, and classical music enthusiasts from home and abroad every summer.

The main venues for the performances are Alpensia Concert Hall and Alpensia Music Tent, both located in the Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang. Alpensia Concert Hall was built in 2010 and seats nearly 600 people, which makes it more suitable for chamber music performances. The 1300-seat Music Tent was completed in 2012.
