UW Doctor of Musical Arts candidate and voice instructor Eun Ju Vivianna Oh led over 65 students in this two hour event, and they all had great fun learning Korean through the catchy tunes of K-Pop, the dramatic performances of musicals, and the beautiful arias of K-Opera. 

One of the student participants wrote:
"I had a really fun and wonderful time! It was fun to connect my language learning to my enjoyment of music."
