Violinist Kristin Lee signs with Jensen Artists
We are delighted to announce that violinist Kristin Lee has joined the Jensen Artists roster for both management and PR!
Since her concerto debut with Orchestra Atlanta at the age of 10, Kristin has enjoyed a vibrant career as a soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, and educator. Kristin was the recipient of the 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a top prizewinner of the 2012 Walter W. Naumburg Competition. She has been praised for her "mastery of tone" by The Strad and described as "operating on such a high level that the music carried the day" by The Philadelphia Inquirer. Her recent debut at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra was deemed a "perfect balance of finesse and vigor" and a "commanding performance that demanded and got rapt attention from the audience" by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Other recent engagements include appearances with the Guiyang Symphony Orchestra of China and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and a program of new works commissioned by Kristin, which was premiered at Philadelphia’s World Cafe Live and performed at Le Poisson Rouge.

Kristin was a winner of Astral Artists’ 2010 National Auditions and has spent the last six years developing her career on the non-profit organization's highly esteemed and intensely cultivated roster of classical musicians. We are thrilled and grateful that Astral Artists' Vera Wilson connected Kristin with Jensen Artists earlier this year, and look forward to partnering with her in her career.
Upcoming highlights for the 2016-17 season include her debut with the Tacoma Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Nordic Chamber Orchestra of Sweden, and return to the Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional of Dominican Republic. Kristin is also a member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, following her completion of a three-year residency as a CMS Two artist, and will tour in 12 states across the country with the world-renowned chamber group this season.
Kristin has previously appeared as soloist with The Philadelphia Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony, New Jersey Symphony, Korean Broadcasting Symphony of Korea, and more, and on some of the world’s finest concert stages including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, the Kennedy Center, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, Ravinia Festival, Metropolitan Museum, Louvre Museum in Paris, and Korea’s Kumho Art Gallery.
