Chamber Strings to Present Fall Concert



Lee University Chamber Strings, an all-string student ensemble of Lee’s School of Music, will present its fall concert on Monday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

The performance will feature various styles from popular Latin tangos, sambas, and bachatas to classic American Broadways and the blues of New Orleans.

“The Lee University Chamber Strings is a dynamic group of enthusiastic students,” said Xiaoqing Yu, director of the ensemble. “Their dedication to music, engaging persona, and charming stage presence will definitely win the audience over.”

The group will perform works such as “Latino Hoedown,” “It Takes One to Tango,” “Pizzicato Blues,” and “Bossa Verde.”

Chamber Strings comprises the university’s finest violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists providing innovative programming for venues on and off campus.

Yu joined Lee’s School of Music in 2004 with worldwide performance experience. In addition to his role as an associate professor of violin, he served 24 seasons as concertmaster of Greenville Symphony. Yu resigned from its post in 2017 and formed Lee Trio. He earned degrees from University of South Carolina, the Manhattan School of Music, and the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music.

“I promise an engaging night of entertaining music that will enliven the spirits of those in attendance,” said Yu.

The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
