*World premiere orchestral arrangements by Jihwan Kim
After its recently sold-out debut performance at New York City's historic Town Hall, One World Symphony and its conductor, Sung Jin Hong, close their memorable fifth season with two adventurous programs in June. In memory of its principal violist James Coleman, One World Symphony will present the first annual James Coleman Young People's Concert. James, who lost his battle with cancer last year at the age of 33, was a passionate and generous artist who embraced all musical genres, from the classical to the popular. In homage to his vision of music as an art that should be available and accessible to everyone, OWS will premier new orchestrations of the music of U2 by one of One World Symphony's resident composers Jihwan Kim. The concert continues to celebrate life with one of the twentieth century's most popular works, Gustav Holst's The Planets. One World Symphony will round out the program with Stanley Grill's world premiere Pluto, an impressive and mystical score for a full orchestra.
