Internationally acclaimed pianist Soyeon Kate Lee returns to town this month as part of the 2019-2020 Performing Arts Classical Piano Series presented by Cuyahoga Community College.

She’ll give a free performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 24, in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Gartner Auditorium. Seating is on a first-come basis the day of the recital, and the performance will feature works by Mozart, Debussy, Granados, Auerbach and Chopin.

“Soyeon plays with a passion that brings new energy and life to classic pieces,” says Emanuela Friscioni, director of Tri-C’s Classical Piano Series, in a press release. “There is a captivating beauty to her performances that mesmerizes audiences from the first note to the last.”

The Korean-American pianist won second prize and the Mozart Prize at the 2003 Cleveland International Piano Competition and first-prize at the 2010 Naumberg International Piano Competition. She’s performed with the Cleveland Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra, Ulsan Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta de València and Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional.
