Sammamish piano prodigy Nathan Lee to play Benaryoa Hall

March 22, 2011

Nathan Lee lives for music. Going to his weekly piano lesson is his favorite thing to do, he said. You could also say he lives in the music he plays.

He gets so immersed in the emotion and dynamics of a classical piece like Chopin’s Nocturne No. 20 in C# Minor, or Mozart’s Concerto No. 8 that he can tell you how the story unfolds.

“When playing piano I imagine what’s happening in the story,” he said.

Nathan Lee, 9, of Sammamish, recently won the grand prize at the 2011 KING FM Ten Grands Young Artist Awards. In addition to receiving a $1,000 scholarship from classic KING FM, Nathan has earned a place as featured soloist center stage in Benaroya Hall during Ten Grands concert on April 1. Photo by Han Lee
