Music will include a collection of French children’s songs sung by the Gwangju Orphanage Choir, a medley from “Les Miserables,” operatic pieces from “Carmen” and “Faust,” and songs by composers such as Debussy and Ravel.

The concert will be capped off with some Korean folk music.

The concert starts 5 p.m. at the Bitgoeul Cultural Center near Gwangju Park in Nam-gu.
