Update: Yoo Jae Suk Comments Following Harp Performance With Korean Symphony Orchestra
Updated February 13 KST:
Yoo Jae Suk has completed his first performance as a harpist!
For a project of his program “How Do You Play?,” Yoo Jae Suk appeared on stage for the encore of the “11 O’Clock Concert” at Seoul Arts Center and performed Beethoven’s “Ich liebe dich” on harp with the Korean Symphony Orchestra’s harpist Yoon Hea Soon.
“Ich liebe dich” is originally a song for voice, but conductor Yeo Ja Kyung arranged the song to put more spotlight on harp especially for this project.
Yoo Jae Suk learned harp for one month from Yoon Hea Soon, and he practiced twice with the orchestra before the performance.
Following the performance, Yoo Jae Suk commented, “I started out without knowing classical music at all, but I will now love and value classical music more,” and added, “I hope there will be many people who want to learn harp after watching the broadcast.”
