1:30~ 2:00 Parade – Noridan (an environmental percussion band)
2:00~2:30 Traditional Korean Musical Part 1 – Taroo
2:30~2:40 Traditional Korean Dance – Lee Chul Jin
2:40~3:00 Traditional Korean Musical Part 2 – Taroo
3:00~3:10 Ritual Ceremony – Lee Chul Jin
3:10~3:20 Opening ceremony – Alan Timblick1
3:50~4:20 Guy Barker Quintet

Thanks to Justina Jang of the Korean Cultural Promotion Agency (KPCA) for all her work in putting this on. Assembling all these artists and activities in one place at one time with limited resources and funding is no small task.
