The South Korean classical music market is changing rapidly. In this presentation, Moon-Seon Park will reveal how the country’s young artists are breaking into the worldwide market while also helping to boost the classical music scene at home. He will also discuss an emerging trend towards mixing traditional and contemporary music, exploring how this can create opportunities in a diminishing classical music market. Finally, he will ask how artists and producers can make the most of other emerging new waves in the traditional music market.
