Established in 1966, the Korean Students' Glee Club (KSGC) is composed of college students studying music at various universities from the Seoul metropolitan area.
Since its founding more than forty-seven years ago, the choir has toured annually across the nation performing a repertoire ranging from the Renaissance to 20th-century choral music. KSGC has been active abroad as well touring China, Japan, Canada, the United States, and Europe, visiting Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, Scotland, and Slovakia.
After the retirement of Professor Chai, Hoon Cha, the founder and director of KSGC for 45 years, Professor Park, Tong Hie was appointed as conductor. Professor Park graduated from Chongshin University and Seoul Theological University. He earned his master and doctorate degrees from the University of Cincinnati. He is currently teaching at several universities including Hansei University, and serving as the conductor of Yaebon Choir in Saemoonan church. Under the guidance of Professor Park, the KSGC received recognition on their concert tours in China, in February 2012.
