From our world folk songs fall program, entitled Come Travel With Me: we will be featuring Arirang, a famous Korean folk song, in an exciting arrangement by Hyo-Won Woo.
Listen here for a recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg-Y-yUGfZQ
The well-known melody opens in unison over a gorgeous, flowing piano texture, before we get a full harmonic chorale, complete with key change. The arrangement’s final section launches us into a surprise rhythmic groove with a lot of percussion. We hear a different take on the famous melody and an amazing rhythmic vamp to end out the piece. Definitely a showstopper!
Be part of the fun! Join us on September 12th, 7:00pm at Calgary Unitarians (1703 1st St. NW) for our first rehearsal.
