Lauded for her “lustrous performances [and] extraordinary musicianship” [Incident Light] and “impeccable technique and artistic interpretation” [The Columbian], pianist Melinda Lee Masur has performed on all three stages of Carnegie Hall, at London's Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room, the Berliner Philharmonie, the Ravinia Festival, the Festival Les Muséiques Basel and in cities throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. She has been featured on nationally broadcast radio, including Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess and Texas Public Radio, as well as on Hong Kong’s classical radio/television station, RTHK4, and has appeared as soloist with orchestras such as the Vancouver Symphony, Shanghai Philharmonic and Harvard-Radcliffe Bach Society.

An avid chamber musician, Melinda Lee Masur has performed with such artists as Augustin Hadelich, Alban Gerhardt, Fanny Clamagirand and Adrian Brendel. Since founding The Lee Trio in 2002 with her sisters, violinist Lisa Lee and cellist Angela Lee, critics have raved about the Trio’s “gripping immediacy and freshness” and "rich palette of tone colours" [The Strad]. The Lee Trio regularly performs on both sides of the Atlantic and in Asia and is devoted to working with and performing the music of living composers. Piano trios by composers including Nathaniel Stookey, Philip Lasser, Uljas Pulkkis, Laurence Rosenthal, Julian Yu and Sylvie Bodorova have been given their world, American and European premieres by The Lee Trio. The Trio's recording of Jane Antonia Cornish's Duende was released on the Delos label in 2014 to critical acclaim.

Ken-David Masur began the 2016/17 season by standing in at the last minute for an indisposed Christoph von Dohnanyi July 16th to lead the Boston Symphony in a program of Ives, Strauss (Four Last Songs with Renée Fleming) and Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, the Pathetique.Masur, who has been hailed as "fearless, bold, and a life-force" (San Diego Union-Tribune) and "a brilliant and commanding conductor with unmistakable charisma" (Leipzig Volkszeitung)again stepped in two days later to lead a performance of Beethoven's Eroica Symphony with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra.  Both concerts were notable successes.  Further 2016 Tanglewood activities include leading the BSO again in Mozart for the annual Tanglewood on Parade concert, and conducting in a gala concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of Boston University's Tanglewood Institute (Wagner, Brahms, and Bernstein).  He ended the summer making his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, leading a concert of the Korngold Violin Cto. with Gil Shaham and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 at the Hollywood Bowl.

In addition to continuing in his post as Assistant conductor of the Boston Symphony, Ken-David also conducts in France, Germany, Korea, and Russia in the 2016/17 season, and extends his reach into the Boston musical community leading the New England Conservatory Orchestra at Jordan Hall, and the Boston University Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Hall.  In January 2017 he will once again lead a regular subscription week with the BSO.  He makes his Chicago debut with the Civic Orchestra in a program of Brahms and Mendelssohn in the spring.
