Culture Festival Held in Korea
On February 7, 2010, SGI-Korea young women's Culture Department held a festival at the SGI-Korea headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. Including families and friends, some 400 attended the event.
A number of performing groups make up the Culture Department, the SGI-Korea Arirang Fife-and-Drum Corps and Puroonvit Chorus, which won gold in the folk song category at the World Choir Championships last year. The festival showcased performances from these groups as well as the Victoria Marching Band.
