Classical music club welcomes new instructor
The Korean American Classical Music Society, founded by Grace S. Kim in 2012, promotes friendship through interpretation and appreciation of classical music (opera, symphony, etc.), selected pieces of modern music, and group participation in events such as concerts and other performances. The club meets today, July 8, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. in Clubhouse 2, then on the second, third and fourth Thursdays of the month. Members should bring their own coffee cups.
Hard-working instructors Dr. Robert Chung and Ken Chong are retiring this year; the group truly appreciates their contributions and will miss them. Stepping in is Dr. Samuel Kyu Kim, who received his doctorate in musical arts with a major in choral conducting and minors in voice, orchestral conducting, music history and church music from the University of Southern California. Though he and his wife recently moved to Mutual 12, he is already actively involved in the community.
