Dear Music Teachers,

We are pleased to announce the first annual Sejong Music Competition. This year we will be holding piano and violin competition in two divisions; junior (up to 8 th grade) and senior (grades 9-12). In addition to monetary prize awards, winners will be invited to perform at public concerts and master classes.

This competition is organized by the Sejong Cultural Society, a non-profit organization, dedicated to promoting the awareness of Korea’s cultural heritage. The main goals of the Sejong Music Competition are to discover and encourage talented music students and introduce Korean traditional music blended into a western musical format.

This year we have selected piano pieces composed by the prominent Korean composer, Professor Byung Eun Yoo from the Korean National University of Arts and violin pieces by Ms. Keumok Heo from Chicago and Professor Soonmee Kahng from Korea as required pieces. Music scores can be purchased at
