Violinist Sean Lee has attracted audiences around the world with his lively performances of the classics. A recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, he enjoys a multi-faceted career as both performer and educator. A former member of Chamber Music Society Two, he continues to perform regularly with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York City, as well as on tour in the 2016-17 season across the United States and Asia. Embracing the legacy of his late teacher, violinist Ruggiero Ricci, Mr. Lee is one of the few violinists who perform Niccolò Paganini’s 24 Caprices in concert, and his YouTube series, Paganini POV, continues to draw attention for his perspective and insight for aspiring young violinists. His recital and concerto performances have taken him to Carnegie Hall, Festival di Carro Paganiniano, Wiener Konzerthaus, and Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Mr. Lee has called New York City home since moving there at the age of 17 to study at The Juilliard School with his longtime mentor, violinist Itzhak Perlman. He teaches at the Perlman Music Program, where he was a student, as well as The Juilliard School’s Pre-College Division. He performs on a violin originally made in 1999 for violinist Ruggiero Ricci, by David Bague.
