Tune in to the Musician’s Show on Wednesday, February 15 from 6:00 - 9:00 PM EST for music presented by Stephanie Chou, a saxophonist, singer, and composer based in New York City whose music combines classical and Chinese influences with jazz and pop harmonies and rhythms. In 2011, Chou released her first album, Prime Knot, a jazz quintet CD featuring trumpeter Marcus Printup (Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra). She has written for ballet and theater as well as for the concert stage. Her work “C for G” was commissioned and choreographed by American Ballet Theater principal ballerina Susan Jaffe, and features Kenny Wollesen on percussion and vibraphone. It was premiered in 2012 at Goucher College, Maryland.

Chou recently released a new album, Asymptote, which features jazz musicians Kenny Wollesen, David Binney, John Escreet, and Zack Lober, as well as viola and erhu virtuoso Andy Lin. She has performed her music in Taipei, Taiwan and Beijing, China. She has also performed throughout New York City at venues including Carnegie Hall, B.B. King's, Joe's Pub, Miller Theater, and The Cutting Room, as well as in festivals in Italy, New Orleans, Chicago, Vermont (Discover Jazz Festival), and NY (Summer on the Hudson, Harlem Festival of the Arts, Sunset Jazz at Lyndhurst). In 2016, she released Compass, a duo CD with guitarist Octavia Romano.
