Grace Lee is a Korean-Canadian soprano hailed “a promising rising star” by The Korea Times. At the age of 13, she was competing at the provincial level in piano but soon discovered her passion for classical singing. At 16, Grace made her debut in the starring role of the world-premiere opera production of Dean Burry’s Pandora’s Locker. She has since gone on to perform in various productions, including five productions with Opera Atelier, where she had her debut as Barbarina in The Marriage of Figaro. Grace’s other roles include Sesto in Julius Caesar and Florestine in La Mère Coupable with the Summer Opera Lyric Theatre and Rooster in The Cunning Little Vixen with The Royal Conservatory Orchestra. She has had the privilege of performing with several orchestras, including the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Yemel Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, Korean Canadian Symphony Orchestra, Markham Symphony Orchestra, and Mississauga Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Grace has also received recognition through several competitions throughout her career. She was named “Most Promising Singer” at the Senior College and University division of the provincial-wide NATS Ontario Chapter Auditions and received an “Honorable Mention” in the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition. Grace completed her Performance Diploma under the tutelage of Donna Sherman and Jennifer Tung at The Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory of Music. She hopes to give all glory to God through music.
