ENSEMBLE JENG YI is a Korean performing arts ensemble based in Toronto. Since their formation in 1998, the group has entertained audiences with their exciting repertoire of original compositions and traditional pieces. Building upon the conventions of Korean performing arts, Ensemble Jeng Yi has created a variety of innovative productions including intimate music recitals, site-speciJc works, interactive performances for young audiences, and ambitious multi-disciplinary productions. Having enjoyed much public support in our twenty years, Ensemble Jeng Yi wishes to give back to the community by providing opportunities for people to learn Korean drumming and to perform in a large community drum group called the Ironflower Drummers. This community group evolved from a 2016 Artists in the Library project at Hillcrest Library, funded by the Toronto Arts Council. When this residency ended, the participants urged Charles Hong, the lead artist, to continue the classes. With funding from the Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council, we have been able to transform an eager group of 15 into a growing community of over 50 members..
