Clarinetist Seunghee Lee is a multi-faceted recording artist, a TEDx speaker, and a music entrepreneur based in New York City. Her latest album "Aspire" has been nominated for a 2023 Grammy Award for Best Classical Compendium.

Seunghee and I were classmates at the Eastman School of Music many years ago and it was a thrill to catch up with her and find out about her many musical adventures. This album is a collaboration with composer and bandoneon player JP Jofre. The combination of clarinet and bandoneon together creates a unique sound which I think you'll really enjoy!
