Sammie Lee

Double Bass

Parkway Central Middle School

Sammie Lee is thirteen years old, attending Parkway Central Middle School whilst being part of her school’s honors and chamber orchestra under the direction of Clay McKinney. She is experiencing her first season as a member of the Saint Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra this year.

Sammie was first introduced to the double bass in fifth grade and has developed a love for the instrument. She decided to take lessons the next year with her current teacher Adam Anello and has presently been under his instruction for two years. In the summer of sixth grade, Sammie decided to try auditioning for Webster’s Young People’s Concert Orchestra (YPCO) and was accepted as a member. Shortly after YPCO’s 2016-2017 season ended, Sammie decided to audition for the SLSYO, and was accepted. She is proud to see how far she’s come in the few years and hopes to grow even more as a musician.  

Sammie is a native Saint Louisan and enjoys spending time with her friends, playing video games, and lacrosse. Sammie would like to thank her friends, family, and all of her teachers for supporting her and help her grow into who she is today.
