/NEW COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1965 Ttventy-six tiny Korean ambassadors of good t.Jho open their 1965 folk dance tour of the United States with an appearance on the Ed Sullivan tele-vision show tonight, will perform in the Sarasota Hunicipal Auditorium on November seventh at 8 p.m. The Little Angels, who are being brought to this country for the first time by the Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation, Inc., will be sponsored in their Sarasota appearance by the Friends of New College. Following their television appearance tonight,they will perform at the Faun-dation's annual convention dinner in Washington before a formal gathering at the Hashington Hilton Hotel. Former presidents Harry s. Truman and Dl-light D. Eisen-bower are honorary presidents of the Foundation of which Admiral Arleigh Burke is president. The Little Angels are a group of gifted Korean children, for their brilliance in dancing, who were selected for the troupe on the basis of a nation-wide contest. Trained under the direction of Korea's foremost choreographer and Korea's prima ballerina, the troupe performs the dances rooted in twenty centuries of an-tiquity. Korean dances, far from the static esoteric art so familiar to many Western-ers, are vigorous and direct, and rated as spectacularly theatrical. -more-


Little Angels -2-L. W. Horning, president of Friends of New College,and vice president of the foundation, has arranged for the appearance here of the Korean children's folk dance group. Friends of New College, a private organization formed to provide encouragement and support for New College, last year staged a benefit performance of the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus and also an evening of the British actor, producer and Emlyn lvilliams' reading as Charles Dickens. The Little Angels make only two other Florida appearances, in Cocoa and in Tallahassee. Members of the dance troupe are all young ladies ranging in age from seven to thirteen years. They will appear in more than 45 major cities of the United States and Canada on this first tour and a later tour of Europe also is planned. Accompanying the dancers will be seven musicians, all faculty members of the Korean National Court Music Academy in Seoul, who perform on more than 50 different native instruments. An English-speaking narrator sketches in the historical background and supplies explanatory comment when necessary or appropriate. Tickets for the performance, which are available at $5 for adults and $2 for children will be available at the Allied Arts Council in the Civic Center or by calling or stopping at the New College offices on campus. -30-
