Born in Taiwan now living in Los Angeles, I-Chin is a classically trained professional soloist and choral singer. Having performed in numerous concerts professionally since 2003, she became known for her warm, velvety voice.  

Her concert repertoire includes Bach's Mass in B minor, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and Mendelssohn's Elijah. Her performance in the latter earned praise from Timothy Mangan of The Orange County Register as "delicate and aristocratic singing in her solos."

With the Camerata Singers of Long Beach and The National Children's Choir at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, she’s sung as a soloist in Mozart's Requiem and Handel's Messiah. 

Her most recent solo work includes Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Pacific Symphony (January,  2023), the role of Shue-Ying in On Gold Mountain (LA Opera, May 2022) and the role of Suzuki in Madame Butterfly (Lyric Opera of Orange County, November  2021),  Notably, she performed the role of Devotee in Philip Glass’ The Passion of Ramakrishna (2018) as part of Glass' 80th birthday celebration at Carnegie Hall.

You can see her this spring at The Ebell Center of Los Angels production of The Everywhere of Her.  Book and Lyrics by Velina Hasu Houston, and music by Carla Lucero. I-Chin will play the role of Katherine Sui Fun Cheung, the first Chinese Aviatrix in U.S. from the early 30's.
