Roman Korean Church to Hold Fundraising Concert

The Roman Korean Church in Italy will hold a special concert to mark the 20th anniversary of its establishment.
The church is going to host the concert at the Seoul Arts Center on August 9 to raise funds for the construction of its own building in Rome.
Korean musicians participating, led by world-famous conductor Chung Myeong-hun, will include pianist Park In-hye and soprano Kim young-mi. The musicians have continued to maintain private relationship with the church after having established connections with it during their studies and musical activities in Italy. All performers will perform free of charge.
The church, founded in October 1979, has leased space in the Scottish Presbyterian Church in Rome because it does not has its own buiding yet, although its congregation has grown to more than 500 members, predominately Koreans and Korean students living in Italy.
