Sunday, April 7, 2018
2:00pm, Sanctuary, Free-will offering
Concert saxophonist, Ashu, is returning to First Presbyterian Church after first performing here in September of 2011. He has gained a reputation as the first and only full-time concert saxophonist. The Chicago Tribune described him as “just as much fun as to listen to.” Ashu is known for his ability to communicate with audiences through charismatic and emotive performances. He is 26 years old and was born in California, and has played the saxophone since age 10. Over the years, he has won several international awards that are typically won by pianists and violinists. Ashu says the following about the saxophone: “It’s really an incredible instrument. It can be played with such emotional intensity and sing like a voice. It’s capable of tremendous beauty.”
