R. Andrew Lee, Conservatory Alum, Named as Top 10 Performance by New York Classical Review
R. Andrew Lee ((D.M.A. ’11, M.M. ’06, piano performance), who is also the UMKC Conservatory's Spotlight Award Winner, 2015, has been named by New York Classical Review as number 1 of the top 10 performances of 2015. In the article, by George Grella and Eric C. Simpson, George Grella notes, "Pianist R. Andrew Lee’s program of Schubert and new music by Michael Vincent Waller, Leah Kardos, Adrian Knight, and Galen H. Brown was already as strong and luminous as polished steel. But his simple acknowledgement of the June 17 massacre at the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, meant that the beauty of Knight’s Abide With Me and the visceral, frightening brilliance of Brown’s God is a Killer, bore witness to real world experience. And so excellent music became great art."
