She has won high acclaim for her compositions, which emerge from a long musical tradition that embraces melodic and rhythmic improvisation.

The concert at the CHS will include sanjo, a traditional solo improvised genre, as well as modern compositions by Soo-Eun Kwak, Dreams of the Butterfly, and Nuevo Sanjo for the 25-string gayageum, with Sita Chay, violin; Angela Griffin, flute; and Jihye Kim, percussion, composed by Dr. Ju-Yong Ha, Assistant Professor of Music at Hillyer College, University of Hartford. Come to hear what an instrument with over a millennium of musical history can do in the present in the hands of this virtuosic musician.
