About Ah Young Hong

Soprano Ah Young Hong has a large repertory extending as far back in time as Monteverdi but has an especially strong commitment to contemporary music. In her adopted U.S., she is a significant educator. Hong is in demand as a concert attraction and has appeared with the Phoenix Symphony and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, among other ensembles. A breakthrough was a series of appearances in 2013 and 2014 in Michael Hersch's one-person opera On the Threshold of Winter. She has emphasized contemporary music in her work, such as Milton Babbitt's difficult Philomel. That work appeared on Hong's 2018 debut on the Innova label, Breath Upward, as did the title work by Hersch. Hong returned in 2020 with a recording of Hersch's I hope we get a chance to visit soon, and in 2022 with the same composer's The Script of Storms.
