Angela Lee, cello

A graduate of The Juilliard School and Yale School of Music, cellist Angela Lee is a recipient of a Fulbright scholarship to study in London with William Pleeth, a grant from the Foundation for American Musicians in Europe, the Jury Prize in the Naumburg International Cello Competition, and a cello performance fellowship from the American-Scandinavian Foundation. She is a founding member of The Lee Trio, which won top prizes in the Kuhmo International Chamber Music Competition in Finland and the Gaetano Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Italy. The Trio has commissioned and premiered works of numerous living composers and has recordings on Delos, Innova, and the Chelsea Music Festival Records labels. In its third decade, the Trio regularly gives master classes worldwide and performs in major venues across North America, Asia, and Europe including the South Bank Centre and Wigmore Hall in the U.K., Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Leipzig Gewandhaus, The National Philharmonic in Kyiv, and the Shanghai Oriental Art Center. She is invited to perform at international festivals and her various chamber music partners include members from the Beaux Arts Trio, the Alexander, Cypress, Guarneri, Hausmann, Juilliard, St. Lawrence, and Telegraph string quartets, The Canadian Brass, and the Berlin Philharmonic.

Using music to foster peace and goodwill, Angela Lee has made humanitarian trips to the Republic of the Philippines and the former Yugoslavia. While on a U.N.-sanctioned tour of six war-torn cities throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina, she performed for NATO troops and displaced civilians. She is deeply committed to community outreach and also performed at the street renaming ceremony for Vicha Ratanapakdee Way in San Francisco. As a member of Ensemble SF since 2022, she continues to delve into a vast array of chamber music, allowing this multi-faceted art form to inspire and connect with others in unconventional settings. She also devotes time to performing with Orquesta Tipica Domo, while exploring the richness of the “Golden Era” of Argentine Tango. Ms. Lee has been coaching chamber music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music since 2017 and serves on the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra Alumni Association Leadership Council and on the Board of Directors of The Resonance Project, which promotes empathy through live music.
