Promising young musicians from around the country are featured in this quarterly series hosted by the UW Keyboard Program.

Thirteen-year-old Yesong Sophie Lee, winner of the 2016 International Menuhin Competition, has been praised as “a huge talent” (Kulture Radio, Berlin) for her “beautiful sound” and her “pursuit of drama and excitement” (The Guardian, London). She has performed extensively in the United States and Europe, including concerti with the London Philharmonia and the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestras and a subscription series of concerts in the Seattle Symphony’s 2017-18 season. She is a student of Simon James, second assistant concertmaster of Seattle Symphony Orchestra, in addition to Jan Coleman and Hiro Imamura.
