Korean Pianist Soyeon Lee is Eco-Friendly

One of the pleasures of my job is to keep an eye out for "rising stars." Right now I'm fascinated with Korean pianist Soyeon Lee. She's beautiful, talented, and into recycling, literally, for she wore a concert gown made out of used juice pouches for her Carnegie Hall debut, the first ever eco-awareness concert of its kind there. She's truly passionate about the kind of carbon footprint she's leaving in the world, so be sure to check out her recent new release, Re!nvented. Instead of the typical jewel cases made out of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), her cases are made from shredded chip bags. Her playing is just as admirable: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKd2OxuWeoA
