The POSTECH Orchestra was founded in February 2006 in an effort to cultivate an emotional, artistic outlet for university members who are devoted to their study and research and contribute to the formation of POSTECH’s unique culture that combines science and music.
Centered by the student members of the on-campus classical music club, “HanUlLim,”the POSTECH Orchestra is made up of POSTECH faculty members, staff and researchers. It is led by Professor Dr. Jung Ki Kim in the Division of Humanities & Social Sciences, who as a director and advisor, has offered guidance to “HanUlLim” since its early days at POSTECH.
