When Soo arrived in Holland in 2001 she studied at the Utrecht Conservatory with Bert van den Brink. After one year she moved to study at the more internationally orientated Conservatory in Amsterdam, where she studied with Karel Boehlee, Rob van Bavel and Kris Goessens. Soo has been writing her own music over the last years and has formed her own trio with which she is playing quite regularly. She organized her own monthly concerts at the Baseline Theatre. In the season 05/06 and 06/07 she has been invited to do a series of concerts at the DJS Jazzpodium in Dordrecht for which she invited many great soloists from Holland and Belgium. The trio is starting to branch out and starts to play quite regularly.
