Artist Profile
James Lee III, born 1975 in St. Joseph, Michigan cites as his major composition teachers Michael Daugherty, William Bolcom, Bright Sheng, Betsy Jolas, Susan Botti, Erik Santos and James Aikman. As a composition fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center in the summer of 2002, he added Osvaldo Golijov, Michael Gandolfi, Steven Mackey and Kaija Saariaho to his roster of teachers, and studied conducting with Stefan Asbury. Dr. Lee's career as a composer, is on an upward trajectory--as he has composed numerous commissioned and non-commissioned works for symphonies, bands, quartets and choruses.

Highlights of the 2015-2016 for James Lee III include the premiere performances of Piano Trio No. 2 "Temple Visions" by the Montrose Trio in Portland, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Detroit, and the world premiere of Thurgood's Rhapsody commissioned by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for their centennial season celebration.
