As the principal oboist of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra, Bach Collegium-Fort Wayne, and North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, Sung regularly performs with many ensembles throughout the country.
Sung holds undergraduate degrees in architecture and music therapy, and a master’s degree in historical oboe performance from Indiana University where he studied with his mentor and teacher, Washington McClain.
