Pianist Genevieve Feiwen Lee to Perform at Pomona College

Pianist/harpsichordist Genevieve Feiwen Lee will present a recital on Saturday, October 3 at 8 p.m., in Pomona College’s Bridges Hall of Music (150 E. Fourth St., Claremont). The concert is free and open to the public.

Lee’s recital comprises a delightful blend of old and new compositions, interweaving a piece for harpsichord written by J.S. Bach, with two world premiere works, one by Pomona College emeritus faculty member Karl Kohn. The program includes Bach’s harpsichord Toccata BWV 916 in G Major, written in the early 1700s; and Lee performs Rachmaninoff’s 3 Preludes on piano.

From her first performance as a soloist with an orchestra at the age of 12, Lee has traveled the world giving solo recitals, making chamber music and premiering new music. In addition to chairing the Music Department at Pomona College, she has performed with the Los Angeles new music group XTET; is a founding member of the Mojave Trio, which regularly performs on “Sundays Live,” a radio broadcast from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, along with many other performances; and has two CDs on Albany Records, “Elements” and “An American Collage.”

This performance is sponsored by the Pomona College Department of Music For more information, call (909)-607-2671, e-mail
