A group of 45 Cal State San Bernardino musicians and faculty embarked on a musical adventure when they performed in an orchestral concert at the world-renowned Seoul Arts Center in South Korea Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Other guests included faculty and students from Seoul Cyber University (SCU) located in Seoul, South Korea, where it has approximately 11,000 enrolled students and 100 faculty members in its nine schools.
The concert featured a mix of classical masterworks and folk songs from around the world, including Korea, Mexico, Peru, Cuba and Spain.
Major funding for the event was made possible through a $498,000 endowment created by the Korea Foundation to enhance the knowledge, understanding and awareness of Korean culture.
Every year since 2017, CSUSB has invited five students from SCU to participate in the university entrepreneurship program. CSUSB recently opened a 6,600-square-meter complex with a new three-story building. The complex will have a new classroom space, a 250-seat lecture hall, administration offices, student study areas and an outdoor plaza. An official opening ceremony will be held in November of this year.
