    Angela Lee, Cello
    A graduate of The Juilliard School and Yale School of Music, cellist Angela Lee is a recipient of a Fulbright scholarship to study in London with William Pleeth, a grant from the Foundation for American Musicians in Europe, the Jury Prize in the Naumburg International Cello Competition, and a cello performance fellowship from the American-Scandinavian Foundation.

    With her two sisters—violinist Lisa Lee and pianist Melinda Lee Masur—Angela is a founding member of The Lee Trio which won top prizes in the Kuhmo International Chamber Music Competition in Finland and the Gaetano Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Italy. The Trio has recorded for Delos and Innova and regularly appears in major venues across North America, Europe and Asia.

    Her 1762 cello was made by Nicolo Gagliano from Naples, Italy. Ms. Lee currently serves on the Board of The Resonance Project as well as the Alumni Leadership Council of San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra.

    Markus Pawlik, Piano
    Markus is characterized as a pianist who combines expressiveness together with a phenomenal virtuoso technique. Born in Bremen in 1966, his talent was recognized early as the three-time winner of the German National Young Musician's Competition "Jugend Musiziert." In 1982, sent as the German representative to the European Broadcast Union's televised "Eurovision Young Musician of the Year" competition, Pawlik won the grand prize, which brought him much acclaim and began his international career.

    He has since performed as a recitalist and a soloist with orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and North America. He has released numerous solo and chamber music recordings, and most recently produced the music documentary film Artur Schnabel: No Place of Exile which was co-produced by the television station ARTE, premiered throughout Europe in 2018, and was presented at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, in December 2018.

    Pawlik also actively supports contemporary music through projects including the commission of a piano concerto by Ichiro Nodaira which he debuted in Berkeley and at Suntory Hall in Japan, and a recording of SNAPSHOTS by composer Peter Knell. 

Pawlik moved to the Bay Area in 2013 and performs regularly throughout the area. In addition, he gives international master classes, has judged numerous competitions, and has taught as a guest lecturer at UCLA.

    The concert takes place in the large Schultz Cultural Arts Hall, with good air ventilation and space for social distancing. Participants are required to provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event. Face masks are required at all times.

Schwabacher Family, Diane and Jon Claerbout in memory of their beloved son Jos, as well as the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund.
