Ryan Lee | 2nd Prize | Strings | 8th Edition | ENKOR Int'l Music Competition


Ryan Lee, 14, was inspired to learn to play the cello after hearing Bach’s cello suites when he was 9. He now studies cello with Brady Anderson in Dublin, and is in his high school's advanced orchestra. Ryan loves performing, whether in an orchestra, recital or for a competition. He has won many awards, including first prize in the Korean-American Music Supporters' Association Competition (KAMSA), the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC) VOCE Alameda County section competition, the San Francisco International Innovative Music Competition (SFIIMC), and the North California Young Talents Music Competition. He has also won awards in the VOCE California State Final, the California American String Teachers Association (CalASTA) - San Francisco competition, United States International Music Competition (USIMC), the United States Open Music Competition (USOMC), the International Grande Music Competition (IGMC), and was third chair at CODA Junior High All State Orchestra. He was section leader in his school orchestra as a middle schooler, and also won his middle school’s orchestra performing arts award upon graduation. Besides, he was chosen to be one of the performer in Dublin Benefit Concert this year.  He will also perform in Livermore-Amador Symphony Guild winter meeting in the near future. When not playing cello, you’ll find him reading sheet music online, doing math, or coding.
