The Lee Trio
Educating the next generation of musicians is integral to the Trio’s mission. In addition to giving master classes at schools and universities at home and abroad, the Trio regularly performs concerts in areas where the arts have little or no exposure, partnering with organizations like BRAVO Youth Orchestras or Music Camp International. The Lee Trio has been to both Ukraine (2011) and Romania (2016) to support the work of MCI. In Ukraine they taught classes and performed for the Christmas concert at the National Philharmonic. In Romania, they gave master classes at the Conservatory, visited the children in PLUS to inspire and encourage them, and performed a benefit concert.
