The Herald Philharmonic Orchestra will take to the stage alongside ballad singer Shin Jae, soprano Shin Della, pansori singer Ahn So-eun and tenor Ryu Jung-pil in the upcoming “Nalrari Concert” series in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province.

The “Nalrari Concert” series is aimed at providing rural audiences with an affordable opportunity to enjoy classical music performances, while also trying to dispel the notion that classical music is mundane and high-brow.

The Herald Philharmonic’s upcoming performance will feature a wide variety of genres including opera, pop, mainstream and pansori (traditional Korean narrative signing), looking to show new sides to contemporary classical music.

The show will includes pieces such as “Besame Mucho” by Mexican songwriter Consuelo Velazquez, ballad single “Volare” and tango piece “Por una Cabeza.” 

Tickets to the orchestra’s previous “Nalrari Concert” held in in Inje, Gangwon Province, sold out within a week, and the show featured K-pop ballad powerhouses Gummy and JK Kim Dong-wook.

All the tickets to the 100-minute concert are priced at 1,000 won. For more information on the “Nalrari Concert” New Year’s performance, visit or call (031) 887-2066.
