N. Korean orchestra arrives in Paris for joint concert with French orchestra

A North Korean orchestra arrived in Paris on Sunday for a joint concert later this week with a French orchestra led by renowned South Korean conductor Chung Myung-whun, according to Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency.
The Unhasu Orchestra's arrival came three days before it plans to hold the concert with the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra on Wednesday. Chung, who set up the concert during a visit to Pyongyang in September, will direct the performance.
The KCNA said in a brief dispatch that the Unhasu Orchestra was greeted at an airport in Paris by Radio France officials and North Korean diplomats stationed in the French capital.
