Artistic Director: Hyo Kang

The acclaimed string ensemble Sejong was created in New York City in 1995 and met with immediate success. Under the artistic direction of Hyo Kang, it has given more than 250 concerts throughout the United States, Europe, and the Far East. Sejong is known for its cohesiveness, beautiful sound, and refreshing musical style, and is uniquely comprised of today’s leading young soloists hailing from eight different nations. The New York based ensemble has given critically acclaimed concerts at venues including Carnegie Hall, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Kennedy Center, Suntory Hall in Japan, Seoul Arts Center in Korea, the National Arts Theatre in Taiwan, and on the Rising Stars Series at Ravinia. Ensemble-in-residence at the Aspen Music Festival since 1997 and host ensemble of the Great Mountains Music Festival and School in Korea, Sejong served as National Public Radio’s ‘Performance Today Young Artists in Residence’ in 2003. The ensemble is sponsored in part by Samsung Electronics and receives a generous loan of several instruments from the Samsung Foundation of Culture: a Guarneri del Gesù violin (1725), Stradivarius violin (1708), Gasparo da Salò viola (ca. 1590), and a Matteo Goffriller cello (ca. 1715).
