The voices of Han Young Ae, Lee Eun Mi, Lee Sang Eun and Park Hye Kyung will be blending with the Kang Eun Mi-led Imagine 21's Korean traditional musical instruments and with Kwak Jeong's harp to create fervent energy on stage.

The occasion has been named the Gala Concert 2001 'Four Strings and Four Voices,' scheduled for October 13. 

The concert, created by the Korea Women's Fund, will be a crossover performance combining the talents of four popular singers, traditional musicians and a classic musician. The concert is being held to raise funds for the 'Hope to our Daughters' campaign.


The performers, each with a unique music world of her own, will be putting together one of the most beautiful and entertaining repertoires that can be created by the women of this country. There will also be a surprise event to announce the male singer (currently being voted through the Internet) most compatible with Korea's best female musicians.

Han Young Ae is a singer that needs no introduction. A theater major, she acted in plays such as <A Woman named Solitude> and <First Marriage>, and worked with the Shinchon Blues troupe. 1999 saw her fifth music album, entitled <Flying.>

Lee Eun Mi is famous for appearing in concerts regardless of fees as long as they are for a good cause. She recently criticized the system governing Korea's popular music culture. An admirer of black jazzician Sarah Burn, Lee is a power-packed musician who has more than 170 live concerts under her belt.

Lee Sang Eun, who is gradually discovering her identity as a feminist artist, will also be part of the gala concert. She will be making a long-overdue personal appearance, after making a name for herself as a skilled musician by creating the sound track of the movie <Bongja.>

Another unique feature of this concert is the performance by Kang Eun Il, who constantly tries to create her own style of music rather than remaining an ordinary Haegeum player. (Haegeum: Korean traditional instrument resembling a fiddle) Kang is a flexible traditional musician who has tried to blend Korean traditional music with popular and even western music. During the concert, Imagine 21, led by Kang, will treat the audience to the refreshing harmony of traditional instruments.

New generation singer Park Hye Kyung and harpist Kwak Jeong complete the ensemble of all-women artists who will be putting on a genuine variety show. The Korea Women's Funds wants the concert to be a way for donations to become a more comfortable and natural act. All proceeds will go to financing projects to help marginalized women.
