Purchase tickets here.

Considered one of the best Chinese wind instrumentalists from China, we welcome back Yazhi Guo to Chicago to close the season for an intimate and intriguing concert in partnership with the Art Institute of Chicago.

Winner of the Grand Prize in New York’s International Pro Musicis Awards, 2012 Hong Kong Award for Best Artist in Music, and selected by China’s Ministry of Culture as an Outstanding Musician, Guo is widely known as the best suona artists in Asia. Born in Shanxi, China, Guo graduated from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing with distinctions and eventually became a professor at his alma mater. From 1999 to 2011, he was the principal suona player for the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, and is currently chairman of the Hong Kong Suona Association, and guest instructor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is known for modernizing the suona, inventing a new “flexible core” that allows the instrument to play in large-scale symphonic orchestra, and also a removable reed system for easier portability.

Tickets available here!
