Hailed as "one of the top ensembles of today" by CNN, Sejong Soloists has established itself to be a first-class string orchestra renowned for its exceptional dynamic style with ranges of quartet-like precision to full orchestra resonance. The premier string orchestra is highly praised for its diverse performances, documentaries, television broadcasts, and recordings. While they have performed the masterworks of Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and Tchaikovsky all over the world, the ensemble presents eclectic programs with 20th century masterpieces and music by distinguished living composers such as Osvaldo Golijov, Tan Dun, Sukhi Kang, Richard Danielpour, Behzad Ranjbaran, Augusta Read Thomas, and many others.

Sejong Soloists has collaborated with renowned solo artists, such as pianists Joseph Kalichstein, Leon Fleisher and Vladimir Feltsman, cellists Lynn Harrell and Jian Wang, and violinists Gil Shaham, Vadim Repin, Cho-Liang Lin, and Kyung Wha Chung. Highlights of Sejong Soloists' past seasons include repeated performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center in the United States; Wigmore Hall and Cadogan Hall in London; Alte Oper and Herkules-Saal in Germany, Salle Gaveau and Salle Cortot in Paris, Dvorak Hall of the Rudolfinum in the Czech Republic, Auditorio Nacional de Music in Spain, Suntory Hall in Japan, Seoul Arts Center in Korea and the National Arts Theatre in Taiwan, and National Centre for the Performing Arts in China, among many others.
