Ashu warms up for a live recital at WFMT on Thursday

Ashu returns to Chicago for a recital at Ravinia. The Northwestern graduate is logging thousands of frequent flyer miles these days, giving concerts throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania.

A native of California, Ashu had been playing the saxophone for only a few years when he entered a contest. Taking the top prize, he was granted a solo recital at Carnegie Hall at the age of 16. That was his first public appearance. “From then on, I was hooked.”

Ashu plays a recital at WFMT on Thursday, August 21 and at Ravinia on Thursday, August 28.
