    Lee Dionne

    Pianist Lee Dionne is a promising young artist who is committed to deep engagement with a wide range of repertoire. As a doctoral student at the Yale School of Music, he taught theory and chamber music to undergraduates and advocates for connecting performances to musical understanding at all levels.

    Lee has performed as a soloist in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and with the Slovak Philharmonic in Bratislava. He also appears frequently with the ensemble Cantata Profana and with violinist Brigid Coleridge. His teachers and mentors include Boris Berman, Wei-Yi Yang, Matti Raekallio, Patricia Zander, Arthur Haas, Michael Friedmann, Paul Berry, and Wilma Machover.

    Lee has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and prizes, including a DAAD scholarship for study abroad in Germany, a Presser Foundation Music Award, and third prize in the 2012 James Mottram International Piano Competition. He is currently a candidate for both a doctorate of musical arts in piano performance at the Yale School of Music and a soloist diploma in piano performance from the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. As part of his fellowship with Ensemble Connect, Lee teaches at PS 107 in the Bronx.
