Sheffield Showcase: Danqing Wu

Saturday 03 September 2022 at 4:00 pm

A concert of classical repertoire performed by the brilliant performance students of the University of Sheffield. Including works by Bach, Bruch and Vitali.

The first half will feature third-year PhD student Danqing Wu, who is currently studying baroque cello performance practice in 17th century Italy. Originally from China, Danqing began playing the cello at the age of eight, and began playing the baroque cello in 2018. She has performed extensively in orchestra, chamber, and solo recitals.

You will also hear repertoire from two MA performance students as they prepare for their end of year recitals in this free afternoon event.

This is a relaxed afternoon concert with a casual atmosphere.
