Born in China, Shu-Cheen Yu began her career as a child star in Chinese traditional opera. Her parents were members of the Shanxi province local opera company and they sowed the seeds that have made her such a versatile performer as an adult. She commented recently, "Whenever they needed a child, rabbit, dog or cat; that was me!"
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.
Her career in Australia has been equally impressive. She has accumulated no less than twelve 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 been a regular guest performer with Opera Australia, Australia's foremost opera company, as well as principal soloist and guest artist at festivals, concerts and corporate events.
