Moon-Sook Park, Associate Professor of Vocal Studies in the Department of Music, has been invited by Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany, to be an artist-in-residence from October 3-14.

The invitation was extended by the Institute for Korean Studies at the German University of Park to collaborate with the professors on a number of cultural and musical activities. A workshop with Korean studies students will focus on a “Guide to Performing and Studying with Korean Art Songs”. There will be a public lecture and a recital with German lieder and Korean art songs.

“I am very happy to have this opportunity to collaborate with the faculty members of the Institute for Korean Studies at Freie Universität Berlin,” said Park. “It is one of the best teaching institutes for East Asian studies in Europe, and I look forward to representing the University of Arkansas through my various activities as Artist-in-Residence.”

Collaborative work with Korean studies would add to Park’s ongoing research and dissemination of Korean art songs. The opportunity to accept the invitation of the University of Berlin will help to deepen the study of the historical music of Korea.
