Henry Choo | Lyric Coloratura Tenor | Biography
www.henrychoo.com, 8 Feb 2015 [cached]
Henry Choo | Lyric Coloratura Tenor
One of Australia's finest lyric coloratura tenors, Henry Choo was born abroad but raised and schooled in the cultural city of Melbourne. Originally trained as a pianist, Henry turned his attention to singing shortly after the change of his voice and achieved an Associate Diploma in Singing under the tutelage of Noel Ancell OAM. He furthered his vocal and operatic studies at the Melba Conservatorium of Music and the Australian National Academy of Music, and with French repertoire specialist and vocal educator Susan Falk.
He is an alumnus of both the Young Artist Program of Opera Queensland and the Moffatt Oxenbould Young Artist Development Program of Australia's national opera company, Opera Australia, and in addition to being an accomplished artist in his own right has developed a reputation as being a competent and reliable musician with the ability to learn and perform music within extremely limited time-frames.
Henry made his career debut in the role of Ernesto in Opera Queensland's production of Don Pasquale, and his principal debut with Opera Australia as the Italian Singer in Der Rosenkavalier.

On a more traditional front, Henry has performed soloist in many oratorio and symphonic works including Mahler's Symphony No. 8, Mozart's Requiem, Händel's Messiah, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Bach's St John Passion, St Matthew Passion and Christmas Oratorio, and Mendelsohn's Elijah to name but a few. He has performed recitals for various organisations including the National Gallery of Victoria, Opera Society of Victoria, The Australian Robert Stolz Society and The Lieder Society of Victoria.
2014 has already seen Henry perform the role of Cassio in Otello for West Australian Opera, Martin in The Tender Land for Lyric Opera of Melbourne, Sailor/Shepherd in Tristan Und Isolde (concert version) for Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, and the premiere performance of An Australian War Requiem by Christopher Bowen OAM in commemoration of the centenary of WWI.
...
The remainder of 2014 sees Henry embarking on a concert performance tour of China, followed by performances of Haydn's Harmony Mass with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Carmina Burana with Orchestra Wellington, and Messiah performances with Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Auckland Choral Society, and the Collegium Symphonic Chorus in Perth.
