Born in Singapore, pianist Frances Lee has keen interests in collaborative performance and musicology, and particularly enjoys creative programming that offers perspectives on lesser-known music. She is pursuing her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance as a recipient of the André Watts Endowed Scholarship at The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.
A Little Day Music is a series of free concerts presented at noon on the first Wednesday of the month in the Grand Foyer of the Wortham Center. Each concert is designed to deliver DACAMERA’s signature programming to an audience including senior citizens, downtown professionals, and students. The series features a variety of chamber music and jazz, presented in an accessible one-hour concert format. Audiences are invited to enjoy their lunch while listening to the music. Bring your lunch or, new this season, purchase it on site.
Beethoven for All is is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
