Donna Lee’s performance will include Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Sheep May Safely Graze” from “Cantana 208, BWV 208,” arranged by Egon Petri, Franz Schubert’s “Drei Klavierstücke, D. 946,” Leos Janáček’s “Sonata I.X. 1905,” Jared Miller’s “Two Preludes” and Frédéric Chopin’s “Barcarolle in F-sharp Major, Op. 60.”
Lee, Associate Professor of Music and Coordinator of the Piano Division at Kent State University, has appeared as a soloist and collaborative artist at Kennedy Center’s Concert Hall and Terrace Theater in Washington, DC and Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. She has also performed in Asia, Europe and throughout the US, with recent performances in Wuhan, China; Brno, Czech Republic; and Maui, Hawaii.
Lee earned her doctorate from Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University, her master’s degree from The Juilliard School, and her bachelor of music degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, where she studied with prominent artist-teachers Julian Martin, the late Rudolf Firkusny, and Thomas Schumacher, respectively.
During the summers, Lee is co-director of the Piano Institute at Kent State and artist-faculty at Kent/Blossom Music Festival and Brevard Music Center in North Carolina.
This year, the Kent Keyboard Series’ 10th season, also marks the celebration of the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music’s recent designation as an All-Steinway School. The Kent Keyboard Series features prominent performers known in the field for their expertise.
