From the Chattanoogan: Lee University’s Chamber Strings will present “Lee-Southern Sensational,” a collage of entertaining characters, on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.
“The evening will be filled with attractive, fun, and easy listening music,” said Xiaoqing Yu, associate professor of violin and Chamber Strings director. “Chamber Strings has been serving Lee and the community for the past 20 years, and we will continue to provide innovative programming to bring humor, delight, and inviting string music to Lee’s campus.”
The concert will feature works by composers such as Bert Ligon, Richard Meyer, Clebanoff, and Antonio Vivaldi. Some of the pieces include “Road Trip,” “Alla Tchaikovsky,” “Millionaire’s Hoedown,” and “Vivaldi Rocks.”
“This concert’s music has many lovely components,” said Mr. Yu. “Not only will we have Mayor Kevin Brooks as our featured soloist and Professor Alan Wyatt performing the St. Gregory’s prayer, but we will also be joined with the phenomenal students from Southern Adventist University.”
Chamber Strings is a dynamic ensemble comprising the university’s finest violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists providing innovative programming for venues on and off campus.
Professor Yu joined Lee’s faculty in 2004 teaching violin, viola, and chamber music. He served for 24 years as Concertmaster of the Greenville Symphony and performs with the Glimmerglass Opera Orchestra, a 10-week annual summer opera festival in New York. Mr. Yu has also performed in numerous concert halls, including Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center, and was a member of the Brooklyn Philharmonic and American Chamber Orchestra, performing in nearly 100 European cities.
