At the age of 15, Nathan Lee won First Prize in the 2016 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, as well as fourteen special prizes. Lee, of Seattle, began playing the piano at the age of six and made his orchestral debut at the age of nine. His engagements this season include his Kennedy Center debut on the 39th Young Concert Artists Series in Washington, DC, recitals at the University of Illinois’ Krannert Center, Rockefeller University, on the Harriman-Jewell Series (MO), at the Port Washington Library, and as soloist with the Seattle Symphony in Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and with the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle in Beethoven’s Concerto No. 5.
Lee participated in Musicfest Perugia in Italy and the Verbier Festival Academy in Switzerland. He has already been heard with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra on NPR’s From the Top, the Cleveland Orchestra and the Minnesota Orchestra, and he shared the stage with Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Lang Lang on the Seattle Symphony’s Gala Evening. He has given recitals in Korea, for Radio France, and in Perugia, Italy where, to a sold-out audience, he performed in a “Three Generations Concert” featuring his instructor Sasha Starcevich, pianist and his instructor Ilana Vered, pianist.
