NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR I RELEASE Hhen Korea's Little Angels appear at Sarasota Hunicipal Auditorium next Sunday at 8 p.m area residents will be treated to the 26 results of one of the most intensive talent hunts ever conducted by any nation. Some four years ago, Sung Ok Park and }fiss Soon Shim Shin, respec-tively Korea's greatest choreographer and most famous dancer, were called upon by His Excellency, Chong Chul Hong, the Republic's Minister of Public Informa-tion, to select and train an ensemble which would represent the finest Korean dance, combing the centuries-old traditions of Korea's proud culture with ele-ments of more contemporary folklore. A series of district and regional competitions followed, culminating in the organization of The Little Angels in the Spring of 1962. Nearly all of the dancers performing with the company on its first American tour l.tere gold medal >.rinners in one or more of these contests. Twenty-six of these youngsters, whose ages range from six to thirteen, will be performing sixteen dances of their country, accompanied by an "aak11, or court music orchestra consisting of five adult musicians from the faculty of the Korean National Court Husic Academy. -more-


Little Angels Page 2 Almost as interesting and educational as the dances they do will be the costumes worn by the members of the company. Costumes change for every program selection, but there is no delay since half of the girls take part in any one selection while the others prepare themselves for the next. Host of the dances to be performed by the girls are "fun" dances, based on ancient legends and folk tales, full of exuberance, lively humor, quaint charm and innocent mischievousness. They are a far cry from the static ritualism most Westerners associate with oriental dance. During the past week all students at Phillippi Shores School and Alta Vista School have been treated to a viewing of color film of The Little Angels in anticipation of their arrival here. Tickets to the Sunday performance are available either at New College, at the Palmer First National Bank & Trust Co., Sarasota Bank & Trust Co., or at the Chamber of Commerce offices at the Civic Center. Special student tickets are available. Appearance of the Little Angels in Sarasota was arranged by The Friends of New College under the chairmanship of L. W. Horning. The company's tour of the United States is sponsored by the Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation of Washington, D.C., headed by Admiral Arleigh Burke. The company also is the beneficiary of the personal patronage of His Excellency, Hyun Chul Kim, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the United States. Ambassador Kim will be at the Sunday performance to accept from New College President John Elmendorf the offer of a scholarship for a qualified Korean youth to attend the college. -more-
