The ensemble will perform “Final Countdown” by Joey Tempest, “La La Land” by Justin Hurwitz, “I Wanna Be Like You” by Richard Sherman, and “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton, among others. 

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

Mr. Yu joined Lee’s School of Music in 2004 with worldwide performance experience. In addition to his role as an associate professor of violin, he serves as concertmaster of Greenville Symphony. He earned degrees from University of South Carolina, the Manhattan School of Music, and the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music. 

“We promise you an exciting and sweet evening of beautiful music, just in time to ease your mind into the holiday season,” said Professor Yu.
