About

Internationally appreciated organist Jung-A Lee performs an intimate recital on the great Walt Disney Concert Hall organ as a gift to Simon Woods (the new CEO of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) and as a token of appreciation in honour of the orchestra’s 100th anniversary season. Jung-A’s infectious and delightful sense of humour infuses her musical performance and our choices for the repertoire.

Enjoy the magnificence and power of the Caspar Glatter-Götz/Manuel Rosales organ in Walt Disney Concert Hall in intimate music, such as in the minimalist masterpiece “Miroir” by Ad Wammes, and in thunderous exhilarating music such as in Bach’s mighty Prelude in B minor, or John Weaver’s Toccata. Once again, the magnificent acoustics in Walt Disney Concert Hall (built by Frank Gehry with acoustics by Yasuhisa Toyota) do justice to Jung-A’s performance and to this music.

Jung-A earned her doctorate at Boston University, her master’s at Yale where she earned the Charles Ives prize, and her undergraduate degree at Toronto University. Jung-A served as organ scholar at The Memorial Church, Harvard University, during her time in Boston.

When not performing around the United States or overseas, Jung-A serves as organist at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, California and performs regularly with Robert Istad and the Pacific Chorale at Segerstrom Center for the Arts. In fact, it is Rob Istad, with whom Yarlung recorded the choral album “Nostos”, who originally introduced Yarlung Records to Jung-A Lee.
