“Experience the dazzling virtuosity and exquisite beauty of the violin with classical-crossover violinist ”
Amy Lee has captivated audiences around the world with her dazzling virtuosity and expressive performances of classical and popular music alike. She picked up her first tiny violin at the age of four, through a local Suzuki string program, and has been in love with the instrument ever since. At seventeen, she made her orchestral solo debut with the Peoria Symphony Orchestra in her hometown of Peoria, Illinois, and the following year she appeared as a featured soloist with the Belleville Philharmonic. She has won a variety of awards and competitions, and earned a scholarship to study violin performance with Mark Kaplan at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington, Indiana. In 2013, she earned her bachelor’s degree in music performance from Indiana University.
Equally at home with classical and crossover repertoire, Amy has performed widely as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral member. She was a section violinist for three seasons with the Terre Haute Symphony, Heartland Festival Orchestra, and Carmel Symphony Orchestra, and has played for such musical productions as “West Side Story,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” and the opera “La Boheme.”
More recently, she has worked on cruise ships as an onboard entertainer for Holland America Line. She has garnered rave reviews from passengers for her soulful playing and compelling performances, both in lounges and on the showroom stage as a featured act. Amy performs on a German instrument dating back to the early 1700s, and credits the 300-year-old violin for her beautiful, resonant sound
