Cleveland Orchestra Violinist Transitions to Full-Time Teaching Role at CIM

by Madonna

In a significant career shift, Jessica Lee, currently occupying the 4th chair at the esteemed Cleveland Orchestra, has announced her departure scheduled for September. Lee’s decision stems from her desire to focus entirely on teaching at the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM), where she will assume the role of chair of the violin department.

Expressing her enthusiasm for this new chapter, Lee stated, “After balancing teaching responsibilities with my role in the Cleveland Orchestra for several years, I am thrilled to dedicate myself fully to nurturing and guiding the talented students at CIM.” She emphasized her commitment to collaborating with her esteemed colleagues to deliver unparalleled music education and support to aspiring musicians for years to come.

Notably absent from Lee’s remarks were references to recent tumult within CIM, including the dismissal of two faculty members and a vote of no confidence in the institution’s president and board by the majority of faculty. These events underscore the challenging circumstances currently facing CIM.
