Posted on: August 26, 2016

“There soon will be a new face near the front of the Cleveland Orchestra,” writes Zachary Lewis in Tuesday’s (8/23) Plain Dealer (Cleveland, OH). “On Tuesday, the group announced the appointment of violinist Jessica Lee as assistant concertmaster, to the position formerly held by Yoko Moore, who retired in May after 34 years…. Lee, a native of Virginia, comes to Cleveland from the New York area, where she served on the faculties of Vassar College and Rutgers University. She also played in the New York-based East Coast Chamber Orchestra, and was a member of both the Johannes String Quartet and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two. As a soloist, Lee has appeared with several ensembles including the Houston Symphony, given recitals at major venues, and appeared on the music festivals of Bridgehampton, Santa Fe, and Lake Champlain. She was a winner of the 2005 Concert Artists Guild International Competition and holds degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and the Juilliard School…. She begins immediately, on Aug. 29, and will first appear on the orchestra’s 2016 season finale at Blossom Music Center.”
