Get to know Sumi Jo

While it goes without saying that we at the ASO are simply thrilled to be hosting Sumi Jo's premier Adelaide performance we thought it timely to show our audiences just why we are so excited.

With over 50 recordings to her credit Sumi Jo is the highest selling classical singer in the world, and one of the most sought-after sopranos of her generation. Her concerts have delighted audiences globally, including performances at the Summer and Winter Olympics and for the Pope. Legendary maestro Herbert von Karajan described Jo as having 'a voice from above'.

A great place to start in getting to know Sumi Jo is in this Limelight article, published in 2016 ahead of performances in Sydney and Melbourne. 

Below we have linked to some incredible filmed performances by Sumi Jo over recent years.
