The goals of the Sejong Music Competition are to discover talented young musicians and encourage them in their studies, and to also introduce traditional Korean music expressed through Western media. Through this competition we hope to increase the awareness and understanding of Korea’s cultural heritage amongst the younger generations growing up in the United States so as to promote harmony among people of various ethnic backgrounds and bridge Asian and Western cultures.
This competition is open to all pre-college students residing in the US regardless of ethnic background.
The Sejong Music Competition is co-sponsored by the Korea Times Chicago and made possible through the generous support of the Seoul National University Alumni Association and Doosan Yongkang Foundation. It is supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
