    Through a cappella, which started earning popularity throughout the world from 4~5 years ago, this performance by SOLISTS places an emphasis in promoting the beautiful traditional music and culture of Korea and its excellence to foreigners who find Korean music difficult to approach with the chordal harmony of a cappella that is familiar to them.

    Organized in 1992 as the first a cappella group of Korea, SOLISTS gave shows on tour over 20 places nationwide, over 400 concerts in overseas locations, such as Saipan, Vietnam, Japan (15 concerts) and Malaysia and over 1,500 performances in various events with the classical repertories of mottete, madrigal, lied and symphony, etc. and other various repertories of Korean traditional music, pop, children's songs and jazz, etc.

    As such, SOLISTS has been recognized as the best a cappella group in Asia both in name and reality. In particular, with its effort for a cappella performance of Korean traditional music, which began several years ago, SOLISTS is making a contribution towards promoting the traditional and unique music of Korea not only within the country, but also throughout the world.
