Described as “elegant” and “refined,” pianist Donna Lee, Kent State faculty member and Steinway Artist, made her solo debut in 1990 with the National Symphony Orchestra. She has since appeared as a soloist and collaborative artist at Kennedy Center's Concert Hall and Terrace Theater in Washington, DC and Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall in New York City. She will present Beethoven’s comedic Sonata in F minor, Op. 10, No. 2 and Debussy’s landscape-inspired Estampes. The concert concludes with Frederic Rzewski’s powerful and virtuosic North American Ballads, inspired by the songs of the American Labor Movement.
