CelloGayageum is an exceptional intercultural musical duo comprised of cellist Sol Daniel Kim and gayageum player Dayoung Yoon. Drawing inspiration from the “Pavillon of Unification” in Berlin, a city with a tragic history of war, division, and reunification, they have seamlessly blended the musical cultures and instruments of the cello and gayageum to create a harmonious symbiosis in both sound and style.

The Museum is committed to accessibility for all visitors. If you need accommodations for you to attend, please reach out to [email protected] or 617-267-9300. ASL interpreters available.
