Overview

Please review the current policies and safeguards we have put in place to keep everyone safe.

As part of WQXR’s Artist Propulsion Lab concert series, cellist Andrew Yee presents a program which explores their relationship to being bi-racial and going through transition as a trans woman. Featuring solo cello works from contemporary US-based composers, this concert will examine what it means to be a member of several different communities and still feel not quite like you belong in any of them. This evening of music is one answer to how Andrew plans to move forward.

GRAMMY Award winning cellist and composer Andrew Yee has been praised by Michael Kennedy of the London Telegraph as “spellbindingly virtuosic.” Trained at the Juilliard School, they are a founding member of the internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet who have released several albums to Critical acclaim including Andrew’s arrangement of Haydn’s “Seven Last Words” which thewholenote.com praised as “… easily the most satisfying string version of the work that I’ve heard.” They were the quartet-in-residence at the Met Museum in 2014, and have won the Osaka and Coleman international string quartet competitions. They co-composed a score to Wu Tsang’s film adaptation for Moby Dick; or, The Whale that was premiered with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and then in New York at the Shed by the New York Philharmonic. Their recording of the string quartets of Caroline Shaw won a GRAMMY for best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble performance.
