The Lee University Chamber Strings will present its annual spring concert on Friday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Dixon Center on Lee’s campus.
The concert will feature non-stop entertainment and present familiar musical pieces. The performance will highlight genres such as broadway, opera, country, and American favorites.
Soloists for the evening will include Mia Campbell, who will perform a flute solo of “Oblivion” by Astor Piazzolla; Kristiana McCombs, who will perform “Cello Concerto” by Joseph Haydn; and Tianyi Ma, performing a piano solo of “Somewhere in Time,” the movie soundtrack written by John Barry.
The concert will also feature the rare talent of Hanchi Shi, an 11-year-old violinist from Wuhan, China, who will showcase, “Winter” by Vivaldi.
"Guests are in for an evening of wonderful music,” said Xiaoqing Yu, director of Chamber Strings and associate professor of music at Lee. “Hanchi Shi, this sensational little girl from China, will bring much inspiration to all who attend.”
