In US, she has performed as soloists and principal roles with the Florida Orchestra in both Masterwork and Coffee Concert Series (Night at the Oscars, Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5), Opera Tampa (Die Zauberflöte), Tanglewood Music Festival (Rage d’amour), San Francisco Opera Merola Program (Rape of Lucretia), Milwaukee Symphony (Die Zauberflöte), Madison Opera (Rigoletto), St. Petersburg Opera (Ariadne auf Naxos), Bel Canto Chorus (Lord Nelson Mass), Racine-Kenosha Symphony (Poulenc’s Mass in g minor), Tampa Oratorios Singers (Messiah, Lord Nelson Mass) and Madison United Orchestra and Choir (Mozart C minor mass).

Equally beloved on the concert stage, Hein Jung has performed recitals in prominent series including Artist Series of Sarasota, Sarasota Concert Association, University of Wisconsin Madison Artist Series, University of Florida Recital Series, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Artist Series, and the American Liszt Society Annual Festival.

Her recording of Songs of Franz Liszt, released by Centaur Records, was praised by American Record Guide: “Hein has the perfect voice-terrific ease in her upper register and a silvery clear tone.” Hein Jung’s performances have received rave reviews from Tampa Bay Times, San Francisco Chronicles, San Francisco Classical Voice, Capital Times, Hartford Courant, Herald-Tribune and Music Choonchoo, the Korean classical music magazine.
