Joanna Kim-Doye and Sanghie Lee

Joanna Kim and Sanghie Lee were born in Seoul, South Korea, and they met each other at the University of North Georgia as piano faculty in 2019. They both acclaimed for their active solo & chamber music performance and awarded many prizes in competitions. Although they had different musical educational backgrounds and styles, the two pianists realized that their ensemble falls into place in the very first rehearsal. Soon after, they decided to form a piano duo.

The Kim/Lee duo hailed for their charismatic but sensitive performance on the stage. The duo has performed and toured around the United States including Clemson University, University of North Georgia, Shorter university, University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and Vanderbilt University. They especially have built a big repertoire that ranges from baroque to contemporary music, and they love to collaborate with other musicians. Their recent concert series “traveling around the world” drew enthusiastic applause from audiences.
