Katherine Needleman joined the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as principal oboist in 2003, the same year she won first prize at the International Double Reed Society’s Gillet-Fox Competition. 

Devoted to the music of our time, Ms. Needleman has premiered numerous works and has commissioned works by Luis Prado, Chia-Yu Hsu and David Ludwig. She gave the American premiere of Brenno Blauth’s Concertino and the West Coast premiere of Christopher Rouse’s Oboe Concerto at the Cabrillo Festival with Marin Alsop conducting.

Ms. Needleman attended high school at the Baltimore School for the Arts but left early to attend the Curtis Institute of Music, where she was a student of Richard Woodhams. She is a member of the faculty of the Young Artist Summer Program at Curtis SummerFest and Masterplayers Festival. Her debut CD, Duos for Oboe and Piano, was recently released on the GENUIN label with pianist Jennifer Lim. She recently recorded Christopher Rouse’s Oboe Concerto with the Albany Symphony.

Pianist Hanchien Lee is recognized for her eloquent and virtuosic performances as a soloist and chamber musician. Since her debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age sixteen, Ms. Lee has performed throughout the US, Europe and Asia.

Ms. Lee performs diverse repertoire that incorporates familiar works from the piano repertoire as well as compositions by 21st­ century composers.  Interested and dedicated in advancing contemporary music, Ms. Lee often premieres works by contemporary composers. Her recording of Sarasate’s violin works with award winning violinist Yu­Chien Benny Tsungwas awarded “Best interpretation” by 2015 Chun­Yi Golden Award in Taiwan.

Ms. Lee  has served as piano faculty at Peabody Preparatory and Washington College. She is on faculty at the preparatory music school of Carnegie Mellon University.
