Sumi Hwang makes her Rosenblatt Recitals debut this season. With a voice described as having ‘pearly clarity, the intonation just, and the tone even and pretty across its range’ (Washington Post), the Korean soprano has gone on to perform across the world on the concert and opera platforms following her first prize win at the 2014 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium.

‘Not only did people hear a singer, they also saw a performer who lived the music… though she is still young, she has a mature, well-tuned, and light voice.’ La Scena
