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.

Great pianist ... he played some of the more difficult solo pieces and played flawlessly. Liked the smaller auditorium venue .. made it more intimate. AC was very cold ... it was like attending an outdoor concert in December ... Reception after concert was great .. thanks for the free desert and beverage. It was a great gesture. Please do it every time.
