XUEFEI YANG, GUITAR

Born following the Cultural Revolution, an era when Western music and instruments were banned in China, the fascinating story of Xuefei Yang’s rise to the world stage is that of a musical pioneer.

She was the first guitarist in China to enter a music school, and became the first to launch an international professional career. Her prodigious talent came to the attention of John Williams who donated two of his own guitars to her conservatorium. Since then, “Fei” has been impressing audiences around the globe with her exquisite sound and powerfully emotional performances of repertoire both old and new.  We look forward to hosting Fei in our intimate theatre.
