Gayageum is a Korean traditional string instrument.It is
made of paulownia wood on which sets 12 movable bridges. These bridges support the 12 strings made of twisted silk thread. The left hand presses the strings (shaking, bending, or vibrating them) to regulate the pitch while the right hand plucks or strums the strings.

Sookmyung Gayageum Orchestra performed at the World Women's Congress, Busan APEC CEO Summit, G20 Seoul Summit 2010, and so on. In 2008, it was invited to take the stage of Musée du Quai Branly, Paris, France, as well as in front of the OECD conference, which then was honorably nominated as the Excellent Program by the National Association of Cultural Art Centers afterwards.
