Russian online news service ‘NEWSru’ reported yesterday that a proposed May visit to the United States by North Korea’s Eunhasu Orchestra has been postponed due to the recent launch of the ‘Unha-3’ long-range rocket.
According to the piece, the head of U.S. humanitarian organization Global Resource Service and main promoter of the Eunhasu Orchestra tour, Robert Springs explained, “This is not the best time to do a U.S. tour. The concert plan will be delayed, and North Korea has also agreed to postpone it.” He added that the concert tour may prove to be possible this summer.
Eunhasu Orchestra was scheduled to visit various cities such as Atlanta, Oxford and New York over 18 days in May; however, the April 13th rocket launch soured diplomatic relations between the two and made postponement inevitable.
In March, the same orchestra put on a joint concert with the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra in Paris under the direction of South Korean conductor Chung Myung Whun.
