Paul Lee is an 18-year-old pianist and violinist with an already long list of awards and accomplishments. In this episode of On Deck, Paul shares with Raúl Gómez how he went from being a “competition guy” to an “outreach guy,” putting his music to the service of others. He and his brother Timmy -also a violinist and pianist- regularly play for their church, nursing homes, the Korean Society of Oregon, Portland Rescue Mission, the Ronald McDonald Charity Home, and the Wilsonville Korean War Memorial.
Paul is a senior at Aloha High School, a co-concertmaster of the Portland Youth Philharmonic, and a student of pianist Dr. Julia Lee. He will be attending Vanderbilt University in the fall of 2022.
