The Austrian tenor received his first musical training as a soloist with the Wiener Sängerknaben and studied Lied und Oratorium with Kurt Equiluz in Vienna. After taking part in oratorio performances, the singer was discovered and engaged by renowned conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt and René Jacobs.
After initial successes on Austrian stages in the early 1990s, Johannes Chum quickly gained a foothold in opera. He is now one of the leading representatives of his field on the stages of the Salzburg Festival, the Berlin State Opera Unter den Linden, the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, the Bregenz Festival, the Vienna Volksoper, the Opéra Bastille in Paris, and the Teatro de Liceu in Barcelona, ​​in New York and at the Mozart Week in Salzburg.

Johannes Chum feels equally at home on the concert stage. A European tour with Berlioz' "Benvenuto Cellini" and "The Book with Seven Seals" in the Gewandhaus Leipzig and in the Wiener Musikverein deserves special mention, as does the "Lied von der Erde" under Kristjan Järvi at the Bremen Music Festival. Johannes Chum was a guest at the Lucerne Festival, the Salzburg Festival and the Salzburg Mozart Week. In the Wiener Musikverein he sang Beethoven's Mass in C major under Fabio Luisi, in Leipzig and London he sang the evangelists in J. S. Bach's Matthew Passion under Riccardo Chailly, and "Carmina Burana" at the Grafenegg Music Festival under Kristjan Järvi. He was heard in Henze's Der Prinz von Homburg at the Theater an der Wien and at Komische Oper Berlin in Offenbach's La Périchole. In 2013 he made his debut at the Gärtnerplatztheater in Munich and Prager Ständetheater.

He achieved great personal success in the same year with two role debuts in Graz: at the Styriarte, Johannes Chum took on the title role in Offenbach's "Bluebeard Knight" under the baton of Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and in September he sang his first Lohengrin at the Graz Opera season opening. 2014 role debuts as Verdi's Don Carlos and Stolzing in Wagner's Meistersinger von Nürnberg, as well as Loge im Rheingold at the Tyrolean Festival in Erl followed.
