In addition to being one of Vocalise’s co-founders, Lester also founded VOX – an alternative string quartet managed by Vocalise.
Being the lead violinist and arranger for the quartet, Lester aims to explore the different soundscapes of string instruments through his arrangements and VOX’s collective sound.
He is also Vocalise’s resident arranger and his pieces frequently involve crossover genres merging new sounds with familiar ones to cater to audiences of all kinds. Examples of these include Smoke Symphony (Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water X Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5), Home with Bach (Dick Lee’s Home X Bach’s Cello Suite No.1), and Rolling with Mozart (Adele’s Rolling in the Deep X Mozart’s Symphony No. 40).
