Soprano So Young Park sang the role of Olympia in Tales of Hoffman with LA Opera on March 30, 2017. Mark Swed, music critic LA Times quote, "As Olympia, the mechanical doll that Hoffmann is tricked into believing is his love, So Young Park got by and sang spectacularly". So Young Park is a rising star and the audience responded with full recognition of her talent at the close of Act One. 

Ms Park was gracious to receive me backstage. She is also SPECTACULAR in personality. See So Young Park (pic 1). Also chatted with Marie Cook Glover-President of Southeast Symphony-oldest African American founded orchestra in the United States (pic 2); Ralph Gato-Educator/Baritone (Pic 3), and Maestro Grant Gershon-Los Angeles Master Chorale (pic 4)
