Mary Lee has appeared with the Symphony for more than thirty years, playing piano, organ, harpsichord, and whatever keyboards and sound effects are needed (usually “pretend harp!”) Mary Lee was honoured to debut the beautiful new Roland C-30 digital harpsichord in the 2018 – 2019 season, which was generously purchased and donated in memory of Lottie Austin-Evelyn, a fine pianist who also performed with the Symphony.
