Trey Lee

Trey Lee is a Hong Kong-born cellist who shuttles with ease between art forms. This year will see him perform as soloist with such orchestras as the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Tapiola Sinfonietta. In Hong Kong he is also piloting a new festival, Musicus Fest. Lee also commissions new works for cello from contemporary composers. This year he will complete a long-term project in which he will bring to the concert stage music from the film version of the Chinese classic novel Dream of a Red Chamber. He is also a Unicef envoy in, for example, the IMAGINE project with Bjorn Ulvaeus, Hugh Jackman and Yoko Ono. This summer he will be making an appearance at a concert celebrating Hong Kong's return to China 20 years ago, which will be watched on television by 1.4 billion people. Trey Lee now lives in Berlin, where he has no time to go to concerts as he wants first to discover every restaurant, bar, club and organic food market in town.
