Friends of Music presents Ashu on saxophone and Kuang-Hao Huang on piano in concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 20, at Calvary Assembly of God, 518 Fir St., Brookings.

At age 26, Ashu has established himself as a concert saxophonist by winning major competitions traditionally won by pianists and violinists.

Ashu was born and raised in California and began playing the saxophone at age 10 while growing up in Walnut Creek, Calif. He soon began entering competitions and found himself receiving a wide range of opportunities, including his recital debut, which took place at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, and his concerto debut, which took place at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
