Loved Oakland Symphony's "Notes from Korea" at The Paramount Friday night! 

Everything a community symphony should be. And pure joy as members of the Oakland Symphony (ever-so-musically) rustle paper, slap their instruments, pop balloons, and blow bubbles. "Notes from Korea" is an ambitious celebration of who makes Oakland that embraces young Korean artists, local and international. That's what Musical Director Michael Morgan does. Watch for these! Pianist Chang-Yong Shin shines in Fauré and Grieg. Local composer Jean Ahn's work for the traditional Korean two-string haegeum and orchestra spotlighted Soo Yeon Lyuh, the instrument's range and thrilling vocal capacities. Composer Texu Kim incorporates everyday sounds as he explores the complex roots of modern Korea.
