-_ ...1 NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR -INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE NOVEMBER 4, 1965 Twenty-six diminutive Korean children, trained in the ancient folk dances of their nation, will offer a concert at Sarasota Municipal Auditorium Sunday at 8 p.m. Sponsored on their visit to the area by The Friends of New College, the Korean company will stay over night in the new residence courts at New College, continuing their tour on Monday. Along with The Little Angels, as the young Koreans are known, will be Korean Ambassador Hyun Chul Kim. Ambassador Kim will receive an offer of a scholar-ship for a Korean youngster to study at New College. Presentation of the scholar-ship will be made by President John Elmendorf. The Little Angels' program will have a total of sixteen dance numbers accompanied by a Court Music Orchestra performing on fifty instruments, some dating in origin to before the beginning of written history. Two narrators will explain the significance of the dance to the audience. Tickets to the performance will be on sale at the door of the audi-torium beginning at 7 p.m. Koreans have, throughout the ages, revered and faithfully preserved the forms of their dance, which combine natural beauty, artful symmetry, and a sense of exhilaration. Korean dances are quite different from the usual concept of the static Oriental dances. -more-


THE LITTLE ANGELS Page 2 This is the first American tour for this troupe of youngsters whose selection and training began more than three years ago. They gave their premiere performance at a formal Washington occasion in September and since then have appeared about the country and on national television. They come here through the efforts of L. W. Horning, chairman of The Friends of New College and also an officer of the Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation headed by Admiral Arleigh Burke. The youngsters, all of whom are between the ages of seven and will have dinner with New College students Sunday evening before the performance and then will be overnight guests of the college after the performance. Funds derived from the performance are used to assist in various programs at New College. In their program, the youngsters retell by means of dance, ancient stories of their country. They enact a warrior's dance, the story of a penitent monk, stories of farmers and weavers, of a mask dance, and of a wedding day. Grand finale for the program, though, is a number featuring the entire troupe and called "America, The Beautiful." Every dance demands a change of costume and this is accomplished by half the company changing while the other half dances. There are also many exotic stage props and fascinating musical instruments with such names as "a-thaing,11 the "chang-ko," or the "Saing." This will be the only appearance of The Little Angels in South Florida. -30-
