The venue is beloved by the world’s most famous classical orchestras and performers and by their audiences because of its superior sound quality, and is visited by over 1,000 top musicians each year.
Welcome to the Daegu Concert House website!
President Lee Cheol-woo
Daegu City has been the foundation of modern Korean music; it is where Korea’s gagok (lyric song cycles accompanied by an orchestra), children’s songs, and opera originated and a piano was used for the first time. Daegu Concert House continues its growth as a classical music performance hub, presenting a new vision and ideal both at home and abroad.
Daegu Concert House has shown its dedication to disseminating classical music to the world by supporting diverse programs and events, including the World Orchestra Series; the Solasian Youth Orchestra; the Premier Performance Series; the Insight Series, the Different Series; the Ensemble Blank; the Daegu International Contemporary Music Festival; and the Summer Festival in Daegu. The Music house also offers a multitude of educational programs and on-site performances.
In keeping with its status as a world-class performance venue dedicated to the performance, production and celebration of classical music, and in response to requests from Daegu’s musicians, the Concert House has installed a pipe organ in its Grand Hall. Further, to diversify our offerings, we are extending our music network and platform globally to include Russia, countries along the Silk Road, and Eastern Europe, under the theme “Making friends with the world.”
With the accelerating pace of global information sharing through 5G, and the development of AI robots threatening the classical music genre, it is critical that we establish a new identity for Daegu as the world’s most creative city of music, going beyond western music.
We look forward to your continued support and patronage so that Daegu Concert House can continue to grow as one of the world’s leading performance venues
President, Daegu Concert House
