I played my first concert in Korea last night. It was definitely a very memorable show. I have always wanted to play my arrangements of movie music with the scenes from the movie being played in the background and I was finally able to do that last night. The crowd was really into the music and was very receptive to my humor and my very poor Korean skills. It was a lot of fun to talk and meet with people from the audience after the show. Everyone wanted to take a picture with me. I dedicated a traditional Korean song called "Ariran" to the victims of the ferry accident.
It was a very memorable trip to Korea. I ate lots of spicy but tasty Korean food and made a bunch of new friends. Traveling can be tiring but getting a chance to be introduced to new culture and meet new interesting people makes it all worth while. I think I will be going back soon but I need to learn a few more Korean words. One guy even told me that my piano playing was great but I need to work on my Korean. I appreciate his honesty.
This performance was part of the Jeonju International Film Festival
Feeding frenzy after the show. Everyone was really nice!
