From Goethe Institut:
The soprano To Loan, who was born in 1986 in Thai Nguyen, has been studying at the Vietnam National Academy of Music since 2006. She became known for her first place in the chamber music category at the competition Sao May in 2011. To Loan introduces herself to the audience with a concert night with German operas and Vietnamese songs of her latest music album, together with Vu Manh Dung (baritone) and accompanied by Tam Ngoc (piano).
In 2012 she had appearances at the German Opera Night of the Goethe-Institut at the opera houses in Hanoi and in Hai Phong. At these concerts To Loan proved her outstanding vocal power under the direction of the German conductor Jonas Albert.
With the aid of a talent-scholarship from the Goethe-Institut, To Loan has studied several weeks in Germany in 2012. She has attended lectures by renowned German mezzo-soprano and vocal pedagogue Hedwig Fassbender.
