Korean soprano Sumi Jo to perform at deSingel, Antwerp

13:21 19/11/2021

Grammy award-winning coloratura soprano Sumi Jo performs a recital Nuit d’étoiles with pianist Jeff Cohen in Antwerp on 3 December in a 35th anniversary celebration of her career.

The concert also brings to the close a year-long programme of events by the Korean Cultural Centre marking the 120th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Belgium and Korea.

Praised for the remarkable agility, precision and warmth of her voice, as well as her outstanding musicianship, Sumi Jo has established herself as one of her generation’s most sought-after sopranos.

Performing alongside her friend, American pianist and film music composer, Jeff Cohen, the programme combines tunes and songs from a variety of eras, languages and cultures, in addition to instrumental pieces. "On stage, you have to give everything you have," says Jo. "It's not enough with just the voice. You have to give yourself up and be genuine and open."
