    Lee, Julianne

    Violinist and violist from Seoul, South Korea, whose father and sister were both cellists, he with the Korean Broadcasting System Symphony Orchestra and she with the Bochum Symphony Orchestra.


    Julianne debuted with the Lake Placid Symphonietta at seven years of age.  She attended the Conservatoire Superieur de Paris, the Curtis Institute of Music, and the New England Conservatory.  She is also an alumna of the New York String Orchestra Seminar.  Her teachers included Marylou Speaker Churchill, Victor Danchenko, Joseph DePasquale, Kim Kashkashian, Joseph Silverstein, and Donald Weilerstein.


    While at Curtis, she performed several recitals, including Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Trio in E flat, Op. 3” and “Trio in G, Op. 9, No. 1” Ernst von Dohnanyi’s “Serenade in C minor, Op. 10”, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Quintet in G minor, K. 516”, Maurice Ravel’s “Introduction and Allegro”, and Arnold Schoenberg’s “Verklarte Nacht, Op. 4”.


    She has also been active in the Marlboro Music Festival, where she has performed Beethoven’s “Quintet in C minor, Op. 104”, Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Felix Mendelssohn’s “Piano Quartet in B minor, Op. 3”, Franz Schubert’s “Piano Quintet in A, Op. 114, D. 667” (“The Trout”) and “Octet in F major, Op. 166, D. 803”, and Clara Schumann’s “Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 17”.


    In her first year at the New England Conservatory, her teacher, the late Marylou Speaker Churchill, encouraged her to audition for an opening in the Boston Symphony Orchestra.  Much to her own astonishment, she won the audition, beating out over two hundred other applicants.  She became the youngest member of the 2006-2007 edition of the BSO. 


    Other groups with whom she has worked include Andover Chamber Music, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Baden-Baden Philharmonie, the Boston Artists Ensemble, the Boston Trio, Classical Tangent, the Guarneri String Quartet, the Inside Out Chamber Orchestra, the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players, the KBS Symphony Orchestra, and the Ludovico Ensemble.


    In September 2006, the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players performed at Good Shepherd Church in a program that comprised Beethoven’s “Piano Quartet No. 2, WoO 36”, Friedrich Kuhlau’s “Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano”, Mendelssohn’s “Violin Concerto”, and Joachim Raff’s “Octet in C, Op. 176”.


    Three was company on 17th October 2007 when Julianne, cellist Margo Tatgenhorst Drakos and violinist Soovin Kim delivered the world premiere of R. Murray Shafer’s “String Trio”, which was sandwiched between Beethoven’s “Serenade for String Trio, Op. 8” and Mozart’s “Divertimento in E flat major, K. 563” at the Tucson Convention Center.


    In 2008, she completed her Master’s of Music degree at the New England Conservatory of Music. 


    Julianne was a guest soloist with the Ludovico Ensemble when they performed Harrison Birtwistle’sNenia:  The Death of Orpheus”, Jonathan Harvey’s “Cantata X”, and Andy Vores’s “Dark Mother” at the Boston Conservatory on 23rd November 2008.


    In August 2009, she participated in the Salt Bay Chamberfest with a recital at Darrows Barn on Damariscotta Farm that consisted of Beethoven’s “Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 5 in F major, Op. 24” (“Spring”), Cesar Franck’s “Quintet for Piano and Strings in F minor”, and Arthur Honegger’s “Sonatina for Violin and Cello”.


    The Boston Trio entertained at the New England Conservatory on 1st November 2010 in a recital of Beethoven’s “Trio for Piano and Strings No. 2 in G major, Op. 1”, Johannes Brahms’ “Sextet for Strings No. 2 in G major, Op. 36”, and Gunther Schuller’s “Quartet for Four Double Basses”.


    On 4th March 2011, the Boston Arts Ensemble performed at Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.  Their exhibit, as it were, included Beethoven’s “Serenade for String Trio in D, Op. 9”, Luigi Boccherini’s “Quintet No. 5 in E minor, Op. 15”, Schubert’s “String Quartet in B flat, D. 112”, and Judith Weir’s “String Quartet”.  They reprised the program on 6th March at Trinity Church in Newton, Massachusetts.


    In the field of music education, Julianne has been a member of the faculty at the Berklee School of Music since the autumn of 2011.
