When jazz meets aria, vocal music is the closest to natural and emotional expression. As early as the origins of Western music, the human voice was the most important form of performance. Speaking of jazz, we have to mention countless great singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and others who made great music with their iconic voices.

Next Friday (Nov. 27), Protected content will invite Liu Shen, a Countertenor singer known as "opera genius" and "Chinese miracle," to serve an unusual "jazz aria" evening.

Born in Beijing in Protected content , Andy Shen Liu fell in love with singing before he was 5 years old after watching the live opera "La Traviata" while also learning to play the piano. With gifted hearing, he learned to sing such classic works as La Traviata and Mozart's The Magic Flute just by listening to records and DVDS. At the age of 10, Liu Shen sang a series of 14 opera excerpts from famous composers including Mozart, Offenbach, Puccini and Verdi at his solo concert. Before he formally entered the PreCollege Division of Juilliard In the United States to study vocal music in Protected content , he completed many large-scale opera works in China without any teachers and only by virtue of his extraordinary musical sense and expressiveness. In addition, Mr. Liu directed musical "Les Miserables" and Shakespeare's "Macbeth" (co-starring) when he was 13 and 14.
