We here at Rush Hour were thrilled to have had saxophonist Ashu as part of our 2007 season! Ashu kindly stepped in for violinist Bernard Zinck, who had an unexpected change in his concert schedule.
In a program titled Global Rhythms that featured the music of Ibert, Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla, and Morricone, Ashu and pianist Kuang-Hao Huang performed with brilliance and passion – which elicited a well-deserved standing ovation from the Rush Hour audience! Also, many thanks to St. James’ Director of Cathedral Music, Bruce Barber, for giving Rush Hour guests a special tour of the mighty St. James organ after the concert!
Thank you to everyone for spending their Independence Day Eve with Rush Hour, and we hope you all enjoyed Ashu and Kuang-Hao’s musical fireworks as a prelude to Chicago’s fireworks celebration.
