Though it's mostly known today as a jazz instrument, the saxophone was originally developed for classical musicians, and there are few better classical saxophonists today than Ashu. The wildly talented and charaismatic performer has played at New York's Carnegie Hall and Zurich's Tonhalle, and performed with some of North America and Europe's premier orchestras. He even won the Musical Olympus International Festival Audience Award in St. Petersburg, Russia -- beating out the First Prize winners of the world's foremost violin, piano and voice competitions in a shocking upset. Ashu, who earned his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in saxophone performance from Northwestern University, plays solo and orchestral concerts around the globe. His repertoire includes works composed for solo saxophone by soprano and alto sax works by Debussy, Villa-Lobos, and Glazunov, and his own arrangements of works by Piazzolla, Rachmaninoff, and even Ennio Morricone.

Once Upon A Mattress is based on the famous fairy tale, "The Princess and the Pea," told through riotous and romantic songs. Once Upon a Mattress is an American musical classic. It opened on Broadway in 1959 launching the career of a young Carol Burnett in the starring role as Princess Winnifred, a hopeless tomboy who has to prove to a suspicious queen that she is worthy of Prince Dauntless's hand in marriage. It was revived on Broadway in 1996 with Sarah Jessica Parker taking on the role of Princess Winnifred, a production that won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical.
