Annie Wu, flute
Talk about a breakout star! Annie Wu made her Carnegie Hall debut at age 12 and then found fame as a talented teenager, taking first place at the 2011 National Flute Association High School Soloist competition—the youngest winner in the competition’s history at age 15. She’s performed with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna International Orchestra, the San Jose Chamber Orchestra, and the New World Symphony Orchestra, among other world-renowned ensembles. Wu took part in the San Francisco Symphony’s “Music for Families” educational concerts, reaching nearly 26,000 students, teachers, and community members. The California native will be accompanied by Feng Niu on piano.
- Named a US Presidential Scholar in the Arts, Wu created and performed in “A Salute to the US Presidential Scholars” at the Kennedy Center.
- Radio star: Wu has performed on NPR’s From the Top with pianist Christopher O’Reilly.
- She’s known for her classical repertoire, but a video of Wu’s performance of Greg Pattillo’s “Three Beats for Beatbox Flute” surpassed 1,600,000 hits on YouTube. Pattillo performs in the Mansion March 9 as a member of PROJECT Trio.
