Lee University’s Chamber Strings will present its fall performance, “The Old, The New, and The Extraordinary,” on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

The program will include “The Thriller,” “Soul Bossa Nosa,” and “Three Amigos.” The evening will also feature works by composer Bartok and Russian folk music.

“A stellar team of string students with pianists and percussions will show off an exhilarating program,” says Xiaoqing Yu, ensemble director and associate professor of violin. “We invite all to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sound of music.”

According to Mr. Yu, there will also be a mystery guest performance by a Lee alum who plays the mandolin.

Chamber Strings is a dynamic ensemble comprising the institution’s finest violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists providing innovative programming for venues on and off campus. Smaller ensembles that perform standard works from the chamber music literature are frequently formed from its membership.

Professor Yu joined Lee in 2004 and currently serves as associate professor of music teaching violin, viola, and chamber music. He has performed with world-renowned performers such as Emmanuel Ax, Itzhak Perlman, Isaac Stern, and Maxim Vengerov. Previously, he served as principal second violinist of the American Chamber Orchestra, performing in nearly 100 European cities. Yu served 24 years as concertmaster of the Greenville Symphony and 23 seasons with Glimmerglass Opera Orchestra. After resigning from both orchestras in 2017, Mr. Yu joined faculty piano trio Lee Trio.

This event is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. Pangle Hall is on the corner of Church Street and Central Avenue.
