New York Korean Traditional Marching Band
Founded by Chun Seung Lee, the New York Korean Traditional Marching Band (Chwitadea in Korean) was established on Oct. 14, 2008 as a non-profit organization and is the first organization that actively promotes and performs Daechwita (Korean Traditional Marching Band) outside of Korea. The mission is to inherit, revive, and preserve the Korean cultural performing arts and to bring cultural diversity and enrichment to the community in New York City.
The NYKTMB has performed in many venues and events. One of the most mentionable is the Overall Grand Prize at the Korean Traditional Music Competition in Flushing, NY in 2011. This grand prize earned them to be the opening act for a Korean Traditional Music Concert at the prestigious Lincoln Center.
In addition, this group has performed all over the east coast at venues such as Westminster College, University of Maryland, College Park, the FBI Faculty Training Center in Manhattan, the Annual Korean Parade in New York City, as well as for various cultural events all over the New York Tri-State area.
