A native of South Korea, Dongho Lee has been praised for her "drive and energy" and her "ability to tenderly shape a musical line" (The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians). She will be joined by her husband, Andrew Pester, at the Aeolian organ in a transcription of The Planets by Gustav Holst, celebrating the centennial of this popular orchestral work's premiere. In 2010, Lee won both the First Prize and the Audience Prize at the American Guild of Organists National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance. Pester, a Ph.D. Candidate in Musicology at Duke, holds degrees in organ performance from the Eastman School of Music and Yale University. Both organists have performed throughout the United States and Europe.
A staple of the Chapel Music calendar, the Organ Recital Series showcases internationally acclaimed organists performing beloved favorites, modern masterpieces, and original improvisations. The Chapel's Aeolian, Flentrop, and Brombaugh organs are all featured in this series.
