Korean Re New Year’s Concert in 2022
In early January 2022, Korean Re held a new year’s concert under strictly enforced rules on social distancing. It is Korean Re’s tradition to hold a classical music concert at the beginning of a new year, but no event was held last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and strong social distancing measures. This year, however, as the government implemented the Living with COVID-19 scheme, Korean Re was able to organize a concert and invite its clients, partners, employees, and their family members to the event in celebration of the new year.
Before the concert started, CEO Jong-Gyu Won took the opportunity to welcome new employees and their parents, although a large-scale party was not held due to safety concerns. The annual function traditionally would serve as a welcoming party for new employees and their parents with the presence of all members of Korean Re. CEO Won said, “I hope the concert will offer comfort to all of us in these difficult times of the pandemic.”
This year the concert was all the more special as the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra performed together with Yekwon Sunwoo, a renowned pianist, led by a world-famous conductor, Shi-Yeon Sung. They made wonderful performances with the program consisting of Glinka’s Ruslan and Lyumila – Overture, Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.2, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4.
