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 St Y, Merkin Hall, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall; venues in Moldova, Italy, Hungary; and across the United States.
Dr. Sheu holds degrees in U.S. History and Music from Columbia University, a Master of Music from the Juilliard School, and earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of Southern California.
