Dr. Connie Sheu is a dynamic guitarist, devoted teacher and ardent advocate of the 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, 92nd StY, Merkin Hall, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, venues in Moldova, Italy, Hungary and across the United States. She is a frequent performer on various concert series and music festivals, and has most recently appeared at the Women in Guitar Festival, New York Guitar Festival and Guitar Foundation of America Convention.
