About Seoul Singers SPRING 2006
My name is George Novinger. I have been living and working in Seoul for the past one and one half years as
the Supervisory General Services Officer (my diplomatic title is First Secretary). I have recently formed the
Seoul Singers to create a place where people from Korea, the United States and other countries with an interest
in choral music can get together to sing and get to know each other. I find music is a great door opener for
people from different cultures to share something of beauty and deepen mutual understanding.
I hold a Master’s degree in Music (choral emphasis) from Occidental College in California (CA), and have been
a musical director for the past 30 years for various high schools, churches and community choirs, including
groups in Los Angeles CA and Washington DC, as well as “international” choirs in Paraguay, Brunei, Tokyo,
and Okinawa Japan, countries to which I have been posted with the US Foreign Service (State Dept).
We currently number approximately 40 singers from 10 countries. We rehearse once weekly on Tues evenings
from 7-9 pm. My wife Michiko helps to manage the Seoul Singers, and my 15-year-old daughter Saya sings
Soprano in the group.
We plan to perform a variety of music in several languages, including classical, contemporary, and folk music
from America, Korea, and other countries. Included are numbers by Bach, Mozart, gospel music, and a very
interesting musical setting entitled “Captain Noah and His Floating Ark”. Some songs will be a cappella, while
others will be sung with piano, flute and other instruments. Several members of the choir will be featured as
