This recital will conclude Mr. Holritz and Dr. Lee’s journey of the Complete Beethoven Sonatas for Violin and Piano with their fourth and final performance of the series. The program will feature the “Kreutzer” sonata.

Noted for his “particularly outstanding” playing, Mr. Holritz is a violinist and violist who has performed as soloist, orchestral, and chamber musician in Africa, Asia, Europe, and in more than 20 states around the continental United States.

He has been a member of the Glens Falls Symphony, Greensboro Symphony, and served as concertmaster for the Buffalo Community Orchestra. He has performed with the Vienna Radio Orchestra and New World Symphony and currently substitutes with the Charleston Symphony and Atlanta Symphony orchestras.

An avid chamber musician, Mr. Holritz was a founding member of the Emmaus Quartet which gave over 100 performances in the Southeast between 2004-2006. He currently maintains a busy performance schedule with Schaafritz, a duo with his wife Kristen Holritz, principal flutist with CSO. Additionally, he performs weekly with the CSO String Quintet in an effort to bring classical music to local schools and the greater Chattanooga community.

Mr. Holritz serves as adjunct instructor of violin for UTC and adjunct professor at Covenant College where he teaches violin, viola, and chamber music.

Dr. Lee, assistant professor of collaborative piano and vocal coaching at Lee University, has extensive collaborative experiences in vocal and chamber music repertoires and has given numerous performances in major venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, Ozawa Hall in Tanglewood Music Center, and Harris Concert Hall in Aspen Music Festival.
