Hello Morgan Fine Arts Community,

Please allow me to share some good news from one of the Morgan’s Fine and Performing Arts faculty members, Dr. James Lee, III.  On this past Sunday, October 25, 2015, on the widely popular Shriver Concert Series, on the campus of Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Lee had a new composition, his Piano Trio #2 “Temple Visions” performed by the very fine Montrose Piano Trio.  This piece was commissioned by the Shriver concert series for their 50th anniversary season. 
Dr. Lee will have this composition performed on a series at the Kimmel Center for the Arts in Philadelphia, and for the Chamber Society of Detroit. We are so very proud of Dr. Lee.  We are very pleased that he has chosen use Morgan as a base for his compositional career.  Most recently, Dr. Lee won a fullbright grant to study in Brazil during the Fall 2014 semester.  Please see below a link to a supportive Baltimore Symphony music critic’s review of the concert.  Again Dr. Lee, keep on making us proud here at Morgan!
