For the past 70 years, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra ('The SPO') has played a leading role in enriching the cultural lives of Korea's citizens. In 2005, under the inspirational leadership of Maestro Myung-Whun Chung, the orchestra was reborn and this set a new standard for orchestral music in Korea. The SPO performs a wide range of repertoire from Mozart to Messiaen and continues to shatter box office records. In 2011 the SPO became Asia's first orchestra to sign an exclusive worldwide ten-CD contract with the Deutsche Grammophon record label -- the first two albums instantly went platinum. The orchestra is at the very forefront in terms of the recording technology it uses -- the SPO recording studio is fitted with 56 channels of Sennheiser and Neumann digital microphones, which makes it the world's first all-digital studio.
