Music forms a vital part of the life of St Michael’s, just as it unifies and brings joy to people across cultures.
Every Sunday at St Michael’s we are joined by World-class artists – artists many people may otherwise not have the opportunity to see perform in person.
The performer during Sunday service is:
Born in China, Shu-Cheen Yu began her career as a child star in Chinese traditional opera.
Before migrating to Australia in 1987, Shu-Cheen was one of China’s best folk singers and a principal artist with the Shan-Xi province Beijing Opera Company and China’s prestigious National Oriental Song and Dance Company where she sang for senior government ministers, foreign dignitaries and other distinguished and illustrious figures.
She released five successful albums in China each of which was wildly successful.
Her career in Australia has been equally impressive. She has accumulated no less than 12 major national and international singing awards including New York Metropolitan Opera, Australia Regional Awards, London Royal Opera House Covent Garden Scholarship and the Placido Domingo International Opera Awards in Vienna. She has released three best selling CDs and is widely admired for her astonishingly pure and beautiful voice. She has been a regular guest performer with Opera Australia, the nation’s most prestigious opera company as well as principal soloist and guest artist at many diverse and renowned festivals, concerts and corporate events.
