A star of the Korean National Opera and a graduate of The Juilliard School, Park has performed leading roles in Rossini’s Il turco in Italia, Bellini’s La sonnambula, and Caballero’s zarzuela Chateau Margaux. Ken Noda is a soloist, chamber musician, and one of the world’s most sought-after collaborative pianists.
