On March 31, Yonsei University College of Music held the opening ceremony of the newly built Chamber Hall. The Chamber Hall is the best professional performance hall in South Korea, built in line with the demands of the times and rapid changes in the performing arts market. Several academic board members, including President Seoung Hwan Suh, Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs Dong-Sup Yoon, Dean of University Chaplaincy Chung Meehyun, and alumni and student council executives of the College of Music attended the event.
The event, hosted by Dean Chung of University Chaplaincy, was held in the order of greetings from Dean Lim Jiesun of the College of Music, President Suh, and Senior Vice President Yoon, a special performance by Professor An Jong Do of the Department of Piano and commemorative photos of participants.
"The opening of the Chamber Hall will not only maximize students' skills and potential to become professional musicians but also expand the horizon of music education by leading the future classical music market through music technology curriculum at this state-of-the-art hall and recording studios," said the Dean of the College of Music in a greeting.
The College of Music of Yonsei University is expected to produce leading musicians in the 21st century performing arts world by providing students with sufficient stage training opportunities through the close connection of the Chamber Hall and curricula.
In addition, the "petit concert" will be held on the afternoon of the second Thursday of every month to commemorate the opening of the Chamber Hall to convey warm emotion and happiness with sweet music to all the Yonseians and visitors who love music. Starting with Professor Yang Junmo's baritone vocal, there will be a piano performance by Professor Jacob Leuschner and a flute performance by Professor Cho Sung Hyun.
Meanwhile, the College of Music will start raising funds for development with the opening of the Chamber Hall. Donations will be used to improve the college's educational environment by supporting outstanding students' performances and replacing old musical instruments. In addition, high-quality performances will be held for the Yonsei community and local society from time to time to spread the love of sponsors.

It is not immediately clear how art will directly affect our lives. Art is a unique area that only humans can realize, and these movements and wings are reflected in our lives to empathize with people and develop strong power for us to live more like humans. The value of creative cooperation for developing performing arts talent and culture and arts in the community is a new movement that creates another light in our society and Yonsei's responsibility to hope for social inclusion through coexistence and commitment.
