Chinese concert pianist Yuja Wang is well known for her phenomenal speed, rock-solid technique, and passionate artistry. This summer, she'll be at the Aspen Music Festival, where some of the world's most talented musicians congregate each summer for several weeks of classes, competitions, and concerts.

Here, check out Yuja as she soars through Flight of the Bumblebee -  this twenty-three year old phenom is so fast that the camera has trouble keeping up!

There's still space available to join Smithsonian Journeys at the Aspen Music Festival. Your Aspen experience is enhanced with fabulous seats at daily performances, expert lectures, and hiking in the natural beauty of the Colorado mountains.
