Free Jazz Concerts all September in Seoul Plaza

In September, Seoul Plaza comes alive with the sound of jazz. Enjoy classic jazz (so-called “old jazz”) by representative Korean masters like Jeon Yun-hwan and Malo, as well as a number of other traditional programs specifically geared for international travelers. Of course, there are also a few more modern artists including the up-and-coming punk/alternative group Super Kid. 

‘Culture and Art in Seoul Plaza,’ which first raised its curtain in 2007, has staged over 320 performances in the past few years, drawing the attention of both locals and international visitors and becoming one of the landmark events of downtown Seoul. This year, performances will run from September 2nd to October 9th and will include dance, acoustic guitar, orchestra, rock, piano, and jazz performances. Admission is free of charge.
