Classical music has its roots in chambers as a medium of bringing interesting people together. Erica Lee and Maria Jee offered a unique opportunity for several of us from different disciplines to gather, greet, exchange ideas, and be inspired. Thank you to Sallie, Lisa, and the great team at SCAD for facilitating and making this event possible.
Erica Ye Byeol Lee made her solo debut at the age of eleven in Russia with the Novosibirsk Philharmonic Orchestra performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in Em Op 64. Ms. Lee has performed modern and classic compositions at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York and other places around the world. She is a graduate of Julliard, Parsons, and Mannes.

In constant demand as a collaborative pianist, Jee has appeared in chamber music performances with a variety of artists including members of the San Francisco Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, and Seoul Philharmonic. As a soloist, she performed at the invitation of the Polish Consulate to commemorate Chopin’s 200th Anniversary in Hong Kong in 2010.

See the story by Mark Frauenfelder in boinggoing.net, April 9, 2012, and the short film by Nirvan Mullick, who discovered Caine:
