Husband and wife duo Yang & Olivia Liu are virtuosic talents who create a fulfilling and unforgettable storytelling event on violin and piano.
Both were students at the University of Cincinnati when they met coincidentally. Yang Liu, a sought after violinist and prodigy from China, turned pages for the already-accomplished pianist, Olivia. While in school, each won gold medals in Chinese national competitions and Mr. Liu earned honors in the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Since, then, Mr. & Mrs. Liu have appeared together internationally and in the United States highlighted by performances at major festivals and venues such as Kennedy Center, Oficina Music Festival in Brazil, Algarve Music Festival in Portugal and throughout their homeland of China.
Their program of classical and traditional Chinese music demonstrates technical brilliance and virtuosity while communicating their message of faith, love and joy.
