Chamber Strings to Present Spring Concert

The Lee University Chamber Strings will present its spring concert on Tuesday, April 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

“Chamber Strings’ concerts are always an entertainment-oriented event, this time featuring exhilarating music of strings, piano, voice, guitar, saxophone, and even accordion,” said Xiaoqing Yu, associate professor of music and director of Chamber Strings. “If you enjoy this type of music, the evening is tailored just for you.”

Tuesday’s concert will include Antonio Vivaldi‘s “Concerto for Two Violins,” Alberto Ginastera’s “Danza Final,” Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” Leroy Anderson’s “Plink, Plank, Plunk,” and Lara Fabian’s “To Love Again.”

The performance will feature various Lee students singing and playing solos, along with a surprise guest conductor. Music has been arranged by Raymond Devos, YongEn Huang, Paul Lavender, Robert Longfield, and Vivaldi.

“The audience will also see a mysterious, but familiar, guest conductor who will lead the Chamber Strings for a grand finale,” said Yu. “An extraordinary evening will be had by all!”

Chamber Strings is a dynamic ensemble composed of the university’s finest violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists providing innovative programming for venues on and off campus.

Yu joined Lee’s School of Music in 2004 with worldwide performance experience. He earned degrees from University of South Carolina, the Manhattan School of Music, and the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music.

The concert is a free, non-ticketed event, and open to the public.
