FOA President Catherine Coombs introduces SuJin Lee to the students
On January 21, Cellist SuJin Lee visited the Lower School to perform for Grades 3-5 during Chapel. After her performance she spoke with students about her career in music and also answered several questions. Students were surprised when she revealed that her cello was indeed built in Italy in 1776!
Ms. Lee will be performing as a guest soloist with the Boca Raton Symphonia this Sunday, January 23 at 3:00pm in Roberts Theater at Andrews Hall - The Center for Performing Arts. For ticket information, please visit www.bocasymphonia.org.
SuJin Lee fields questions from the audience
Ms. Lee, a young cellist who was recommended to the Boca Raton Symphonia by Itzhak Perlman, has been performing as soloist with orchestras nationally and internationally since the age of seven, after having won the top prize in the New England Conservatory Concerto Junior Competition.
She was a prize winner in the Johansen International Competition, and in October 2010 she will present her debut recital with her sister, SuYeon Lee, in Paris at the Louvre Museum as part of the Rising Young Artists series.
Ms. Lee has performed at the Corcoran Art Gallery, Zankel Hall, Mechanics Hall, Jordan Hall, Neue Galerie, Sibelius Hall, and the Massachusetts State House. She currently attends Columbia University and the Juilliard School.
We would like to thank the Friends of the Arts (FOA) and Boca Raton Symphonia for helping to bring Ms. Lee to Saint Andrew's.
