Kent Keyboard Series

Artist-in-residence at Kent State and cellist Keith Robinson joins Donna Lee in another anticipated program featuring the sublime beauty and architectural genius of Johann Sebastian Bach in his suites and sonatas. This all-Bach program includes Suite for Solo Cello No. 3 in C major, BWV 1009; Partita No. 1 in B-flat major, BWV 825; and Sonata in D major, BWV 1028.

Donna Lee earned a doctorate from Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University, a Masters from The Juilliard School, and a bachelor of music degree from the University of Maryland, College Park. Critics have described Lee's performances as elegant and refined, engaging and brilliant. In 2011, Lee released a recording on the Blue Griffin label of Felix Mendelssohn's complete works for cello and piano with cellist Keith Robinson.
