The Korean Student Association of Claremont School of Theology invites CST faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends to a worship service and concert, “Dasherauskommende Wind.” Soon-Gwan Hong, a South Korean singer, will be performing his songs and stories of peace and justice during the closing worship service as the main part at Kresge Chapel, Claremont School of Theology.
Soon-Gwan Hong has performed in multiple countries such as Canada, Australia, China, Japan, and New Zealand over twenty-five years. His US debut was held at the Lincoln Center, New York City, in October 2005. He is the first Korean artist who performed solo in the Lincoln Center, New York City. The message of his performance is about the importance of peace in our broken world. Starting from his hope for reunification of the Korean peninsula, he will be singing songs of peace to inspire hope and imagination in the midst of the current global humanitarian crisis such as war, famine, climate change, and other atrocities. He will fill his stage with multi-cultural and multi-sensory expressions: Korean traditional music, Western music, classical music, images, and other forms of art in order to express the strong desire to pursue peace throughout the whole world. We cordially invite you for a night of hope, peace, and justice.
Korean-English translation services will be provided during the performance.
Light refreshments will also be provided.
