Lovely piano notes to celebrate
Culture has always been a must when it comes to celebrations, and especially when it comes to commemorating a Country’s National Days;

and diplomats certainly love this magnificent world, with which they are completely connected.
Korea National Day was a wonderful cultural example, as it began with the exquisite presentation of Hae Sun Paik, the famous Korean pianist that finds herself among one of the world’s best pianists.
Ambassador Soon Chull Shin and his wife Kyung Hee Han, chose Teatro Teresa Carreño as the perfect place to hold this one-of-a-kind concert and cocktail, where many ambassadors, government representatives and different media members gathered during that special evening.
Indulging ourselves with the Beethoven, Liszt and Chopin melodies was a magnificent experience. Mrs. Paik’s presentation impressed everyone and we felt completely relaxed and ready to make toasts to Korea and its people.
This 70% mountainous ours territory has almost 48 million inhabitants, and is formed by nine provinces, its capital Soul, and six metropolitan cities. On August 15th, 1945, korea settled its independence under the government of President Lee Seung Man, after Japan’s surrender; but then it had to face the tragic North South division. In 1948, under the United Nations Resolution, Korea had its first general elections on May 10th.
The national symbols have a unique importance to Korean people. The Taegeukgi, its flag, is composed of the Ying Yang oriental philosophical principles. Both elements represent the continuous changing, the balance and harmony that control the universe.
A unique celebration for a very ancient and evolving country, where its people keep traditions alive!!!
