Stephanie Chou: LianXi – Connection, a Lunar New Year Celebration
Stephanie Chou’s music combines classical and Chinese influences with Western jazz and pop to create an entirely original, unique musical world. "LianXi" means "connection" in Mandarin, and tonight will be a celebration of Lunar New Year/Year of the Tiger and our collective human re-connection as our experience evolves through the pandemic.
Tonight she will present a bi-lingual (English and Mandarin) show, including fresh takes on Chinese folk songs and tongue-twisters (from her album “Asymptote”), excerpts from her evening-length jazz-opera “Comfort Girl”, songs exploring her passion for math and literature, and several new tunes. Stephanie’s music is all about connecting with the audience and sharing her experience as a Chinese-American growing up in NY through her music.
