KiHei Lee / violin

KiHei Lee, a recent first-class honours graduate from the University of Auckland, has been learning under Stephen Larsen for the past 5 years. KiHei is part of a violin duo, Felice Duet, who are the recipients of the 2019 Royal Overseas League Scholarship. The duet can also be found as players in the 2020/21 Adam Troubadour Quartet being the highlight of the Summer School and performed in the 2021 Adam Summer Celebration. Further in 2020, KiHei won the Holdsworth Family Bach prize at the Gisborne international music competition.

KiHei continues to play with her family for the community church and her goal as a musician is to bring the best of her abilities to give herself and others a great experience in music. KiHei plays on a violin made available through a generous loan by the Hill Family Foundation for Art and Music.
