By The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) ' A North Korean and a French orchestra have held a day-long rehearsal ahead of a landmark concert in Paris.

Pyongyang's Unhasu Orchestra and Radio France Philharmonic make their debut together on Wednesday ' under the baton of noted South Korean conductor Chung Myung-Whun, who organized the event.

During Tuesday's rehearsal, Pyongyang orchestra spokesman Kwon Hyok Bong said in reference to France that the joint concert "is a historical event for the bilateral relations of our two countries."

The Seoul-born conductor hopes the rival Koreas can find common ground through music that dates to a time "when there was no division and we could all just be free."

Most of the 90 North Koreans will be performing with a Western ensemble for the first time.
