Special Lunch with Renée Fleming
July 2, 2017 – Asia Society Korea held a special event last Sunday with Chairman Dong-Bin Shin hosting a lunch for the world-renowned American soprano and Asia Society trustee, Renée Fleming. Signiel Seoul, the new 76-floor luxury hotel launched by Lotte Hotels and Resorts, served as the venue for more than forty Asia Society Korea members and their families. The program also included a guided tour of the concert hall at the new Lotte World Tower and a trip to Sky Deck, the world's highest glass-floor observation deck.
Ms. Fleming was in Seoul to perform at the Seoul Arts Center as part of her sold-out world tour and is one of the most acclaimed singers of our time, having performed in opera houses and concert halls around the world. She is the recipient of the National Medal of Arts and Best Classical Vocal Grammy Award. Chairman Shin first met Ms. Fleming at an Asia Society reception at Buckingham Palace in 2014, not long after she had joined him as a member of the Asia Society Board of Trustees. As a show of her appreciation, Ms. Fleming gave everyone in attendance a signed copy of her new CD as a special gift.
