A Celebration of the 55th Anniversary of Canada and Korea Amity - The Enchanted Music of Grace Jong Eun Lee.
Grace Jong Eun Lee is a composer and a performer dedicated to inter-culturalism. She received her Bachelor of Music and Master of Music from the University of British Columbia (Piano and Composition). Currently, she teaches the Kayagum (Korean Zither) and new Korean music as well as directs and performs in the School of Music Korean Ensemble at the Vancouver Community College.
Her compositions reflect a combination of Korean, Chinese (Erhu) and Western instruments (flute, clarinet, piano, string, and percussion). She is strongly influenced by the sounds of nature and often uses them in her works to convey the East Asian sense of space and emptiness. Her interest in playing both traditional and contemporary music and composing for the Kayagum blossomed in Canada.
