NEW COLLEGE R A S 0 T A F I .. 0 H. I D A Sent to Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice and Tampa radio stations Punta GOrda Herald Fort Myers News-Press Collier County News,Naples Miami Herald (State Ed. ) Mr. L W Horning Bruce Dunning Coor .Leisure & the Arts (St.Pete.Times Mag Earl D obert,Ed. Accent FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 6, 1965 Tampa Trib. Mag. When The Little Angels, Korea's charming, children dancers, appear at the Municipal Auditorium November 7, they will bring with them not only their many gorgeous changes of costume, exotic stage props, and fascinating ancient instruments, but also a dance tradition extending back into the mists of an-tiquity. Throughout the ages the people of Korea have greatly revered and faithfully preserved the unique blend of natural beauty, artful symmetry,and the sense of exhilaration --at times quiet and other almost boisterous --which sets their art apart from the dance forms of other Oriental lands which some-times seem static to t-Jestern eyes. Even the more than fifty musical instruments played by the five adult musicians --all of them from the faculty of the Korean National Court Music Academy in Seoul reflect this ancient tradition. The origins of such musical exotica as the a-thaing (a 7-string zither 'bowed' with a stick of polished forsythia wood), the chang-ko (an hour-glass shaped drum), and the saing (a 17-pipe mouth organ) probably pre-date written history, but the instru-mente used today are, for the most part, exact replicas of their ancient forebears. -more-


THE LITTLE ANGELS -2 The twenty-six miniature Margot Fonteyns who bring us this ancient art are rather short on history themselves, since their ages range from only seven through thirteen years. They have, however, been undergoing vigorous training in their demanding craft since the Spring of 1962, under the direction of Mr. Sung Ok Park and Miss Soon Shim Shin, respectively Korea's most distinguished choreographer and foremost dancer. During the past year the company has given many performances in its native country, but the current coast-to-coast tour of the United States is its first in a foreign land. The performance of The Little Angels at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium is being sponsored by The Friends of New College, a private organization dedicated to helping to provide support for the area's newest college. The tour is part of a coast-to-coast tour of the United States arranged through the joint efforts of the Ministry of Public Information of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation, Inc., of Washington,D.C., whose president and board chairman is the famous and distinguished Admiral Arleigh Burke. Former Chief Executives Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower are Honorary Presidents. The company also is under the personal patronage of His Excellency, Hyun Chul Kim, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the United States. Tickets for the performance of the Little Angels are on sale at the Allied Arts Council offices in the Sarasota Civic Center, New College, Palmer First National Bank & Trust Co., and the Sarasota Bank and Trust Co. Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $2 for children. -30-
