Chester Meetinghouse, Goose Hill Road, Chester, CT
Young classical saxophonist Ashu has helped establish the saxophone as a solo classical music instrument for both recital and concerto performances. As reviewed on WQXR, “a remarkable saxophone virtuoso…an ability to keep an audience totally enthralled, as he certainly did at Steinway Hall,” Ashu attracts new and younger listeners to the concert hall. Beyond a phenomenal technique and exquisite tone, his musicality and ability to reach the audience with a sensitive performance and verbal interaction make his performances a new experience for concertgoers. Ashu will be accompanied on piano by Kuang-Hao Huang, who has performed internationally. His concert will be the last in the 38th season of the Collomore Music Series in the historic Chester Meetinghouse.
