LEADLIGHTS  is: Julie Lawrence - Violin, Evelyn Petcher Brandes - Violin, Aekyung Kim - Viola, and Alina Lee (née Lim) - Cello.

Leadlights is a New York City-based string ensemble dedicated to presenting contemporary and classical music in accessible, interactive ways. They are passionate about bringing people together through music - in performance and through workshops outside the traditional concert setting.  
Programs are designed to bring community members a world class performance and a chance to explore their own musical voice. "We perform because we believe that witnessing beauty - whether sublime or gritty - is a human imperative, and that everyone should have access to beauty through music. We interact with every audience because we believe in taking down the wall between performer and audience member. We build our work around the joy of discovery and experimentation. We invite participants into the process of writing music because we believe that creating art together brings people into authentic dialogue and can foster self-realization, reflection, and change." Leadlights' roster of string players are performers and educators who have earned degrees from Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, and Peabody Institute. The group has been featured on concerts such as Strings on the Hudson, Interchurch Noon Concerts, Allen Hospital, and Washington Heights Inwood Music Project (WHIN). "We love new music and believe in the vital importance of both past and living composers’ work." Leadlights is thrilled to be making its first appearance at Metropolitan Playhouse.
