Connie Sheu is a dynamic guitarist, devoted teacher, and ardent advocate of classical guitar. In demand as both a soloist and chamber musician, her playing has been hailed by the New York Sun as “excellent, ruminative... scholarly.” According to Classical Guitar magazine, “Her debut recording displays, without a doubt, her talents as a concert artist.”
Past performances have brought her to Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, 92NY, Merkin Hall, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, as well as venues in Moldova, Italy, Hungary and across the United States.
Sheu studied U.S. history and music at Columbia University and earned a master’s of music from the Juilliard School. She completed her doctor of musical arts (DMA) degree at the University of Southern California. She teaches at the Colburn School, Pomona College and performs with LA Philharmonic flutist Elise Henry as Duo Arroyo.
