About the author

Joseph So

Joseph K. So is Professor Emeritus at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. But his first love is music, which he studied as an undergraduate student at the State University of New York. Since seeing his first live opera - La Gioconda with Renata Tebaldi at the Met in 1967, the singing voice became his lifelong favourite instrument. Over the last forty-two years, he has seen approximately 2,200 classical music performances, with the bulk of these vocal concerts and operas. He is Associate Editor of Opera Canada, where he has written numerous articles and reviews. He is also an opera critic for Opera (UK), CD reviewer for Opus, and a frequent contributor to the Canadian Encyclopedia of Music, in addition to writing for both the print and web editions of La Scena Musicale/The Music Scene.
