Violin Prodigy to Perform with the SPO

Enigmatic EvolutionSPARTANBURG, SC— Brilliant prodigy and acclaimed soloist Kristin Lee is set to perform with the Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra on Saturday, November 14 at 7:00pm in Twichell Auditorium. Lee will take the stage to deliver Sibelius’s epic Violin Concerto, op. 47, a virtuosic piece that is darkly melodic and hauntingly beautiful. Maestra Sarah Ioannides has programmed this exciting music with two equally impressive works: Dreamtime Ancestors by Christopher Theofanidis and the classic Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar.


Lee, recently honored with the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, is a violinist of remarkable versatility and impeccable technique who enjoys a vibrant career as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician.  A rising star, she was chosen to study with Itzhak Perlman after he heard her perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with Juilliard’s Pre-College Symphony Orchestra.  Since graduating Julliard with a Masters in violin performance, Lee has appeared as a soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony, New Jersey Symphony, the Korean Broadcasting Symphony of Korea, and many others. She has appeared on the world’s finest concert stages, including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, the Kennedy Center, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, the Louvre Museum in Paris, and Korea’s Kumho Art Gallery.
