Pressenda Chamber Players
with Sydney Lee, cello

Winner 2022 Washington International Cello Competition 
Korean-American cellist Sydney Lee has established herself as an artist of refined elegance and profound sincerity. She garnered recognition when she claimed both 1st prize at the 2022 Washington International Competition and 2nd prize at the 2022 Classic Strings International Competition. Additional accolades include 1st prize at the International Antonio Janigro Cello Competition in Croatia, where she subsequently debuted with the Zagreb Soloists. Since her solo debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at age 13, Sydney has continued to perform extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia in many of the world’s leading venues, including the Kennedy Center, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium and Konzerthaus Berlin.

Pressenda Chamber Players

Founded by Artistic Director and cellist Tobias Werner, is the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Washington Conservatory of Music. It was formed in 2016 and made its debut on the Washington Conservatory concert series that same year. The ensemble is comprised of a rotating membership of chamber musicians who have for many years enjoyed performing together in various ensembles and festivals in the United States and Europe. It is named for the Italian stringed instrument maker Giovanni Francesco Pressenda (1777 –1854), on whose instruments Werner and violinist Aaron Berofsky play — likely, their violin and cello were sitting in Pressenda’s shop at the same time in 1844.
