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.

Maria Jee has performed to great acclaim both as a soloist and as a collaborative pianist in her native Korea, the United States, and Hong Kong. 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.
