Ensemble TIMF has been into the limelight with their consistent creation of repertoires and fresh planning ability crossing over classical and modern music. They are going to show new repertoire through the Sacred Music Series at the Sori Festival this year. Inspired with the works of Bach and Messiaen who created their pieces in profound faith and worships and the Gregorian chants, they create pure pieces of music related to peace in order to invite their audience. Ensemble TIMF is an orchestra that was organized to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Tongyeong International Music Festival in 2001. The young, competitive, and professional orchestra musicians gather from all around the world to join it.


Araetnyeok Suryukjae Preservation Society 
It consoles the dead souls lingering on the land and in the water.

It's a Buddhist ritual that guides to heaven dead souls that lost their way and linger in land and water. It is full of high historicity and artistry as it is written in the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty. Compared to Yeongsanjae that leads individuals to heaven, Araetnyeok Suryukjae is more public and has characteristics of mixing day and night rituals. Succeeding in keeping the core of beompae which has been inherited in Gyeongsangnam-do, it is valuable as a Buddhist ritual ceremony containing the local features with respect to music and ritual ceremony.
