The Gugak Jazz Society members safely arrived in Boston on September 30, 2019, and had an intense but a tremendous time meeting with such enthusiastic music lovers in Boston and collaborating with various local musicians and the NEC Jazz Composers' Workshop Orchestra.
The premiere last Tuesday, October 8, 2019, at NEC's Brown Hall was truly the highlight of our musical journey. The hall was packed with so many people to the extent we were running out of chairs even after people grabbed their seats in the balcony.
During the concert, there were so many moving moments that couldn't be expressed in words. All the musicians played with their hearts reaching a spiritual level musically. After the premiere, we received a plethora of encouraging emails, notes, and texts from NEC professors, students, and local musicians who came to the concert and from the other random concert attendees that they were shocked and blown away by the incredible music and performance.
