SUMI JO Interview (2004)
Here is the interview I did with the Korean soprano Sumi Jo before her first Esplanade concert appearance with the Singapore Symhpony Orchestra in April 2004. This was published in the April 2004 issue of BraviSSimO!, the newsletter of the SSO.
Dr Chang Tou Liang is a Singaporean family physician in private practice. From 2004 to 2008 he was the Artistic Director of the Singapore International Piano Festival.
