The Cleveland Orchestra has announced the appointment of American violinist, Jessica Lee as their new Assistant Concertmaster

The Cleveland Orchestra has today announced the appointment of 32 year old American violinist, Jessica Lee as their new Assistant Concertmaster.

A graduate of the Juilliard School and Curtis Institute of Music, where she studied with Robert Mann and Ida Kavafian, Jessica is a former 1st prize winner at the Concert Artists Guild International Competition - and has served as a long-term member of the Johannes String Quartet and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two.

‘I am thrilled to be joining the Cleveland Orchestra and becoming a part of an organisation with such a long and illustrious history …. I am especially excited to be making music with Franz Welser-Möst and the fantastic artists of the orchestra,” Jessica has said.

Jessica will fill the 4th chair position formerly held by Yoko Moore - who retired in May after 34 years.
