“The Harpies” & “Signor Deluso” one-act operas

Two one-act operas for one evening of musical enjoyment. “The Harpies” focuses on Phineus, a sightless oracle, whose attempts to enjoy his dinner are thwarted by the Harpies. An operatic spoof of Greek mythology, this opera will leave you laughing and wondering who will win the battle of wills.
“Signor Deluso” is a comedy of layered misunderstandings. Signor Deluso rushes to revive Célie after she faints in the town square, leading his wife to think they are lovers. Célie is being forced to marry wealthy Valère, but she is in love with another. Just when everything appears to be hopelessly embroiled, the maid enters in the nick of time and saves the day.

This performance is funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York, NY

"Molly Joyce is among the most versatile, prolific and intriguing composers working under the vast new-music dome...If there's such a thing as a spirit of entrance, Joyce's music is infused with it: It offers everyone a way in." Michael Andor Brodeur, The Washington Post, December 2020. Her music has additionally been described as "serene power (New York Times)“ written to "superb effect" (The Wire)  and "unwavering" and enveloping“ (Vulture). Her work is concerned with disability as a creative source. She has an impaired left hand from a previous car accident, and the primary vehicle in her pursuit is her electric vintage toy organ, an instrument she bought on eBay which suits her body and engages her disability on a compositional and performative level.

Molly is a graduate of The Juilliard School (graduating with scholastic distinction), Royal Conservatory in The Hague (recipient of the Frank Huntington Beebe Fund Grant), and Yale School of Music. She holds an Advanced Certificate in Disability Studies from CUNY School of Professional Studies and is alumnus of the National YoungArts Foundation. She has studied with Samuel Adler, Martin Bresnick, Guus Janssen, David Lang, Hannah Lash, Missy Mazzoli, Martijn Padding, Christopher Theofanidis, and currently serves on the composition faculty at New York University Steinhardt and Wagner College, teaching subjects including Disability and the Arts, Music Technology, Music Theory, and Orchestration.

Her music has additionally been described as “serene power” (New York Times), written to “superb effect” (The Wire), and “unwavering” and “enveloping” (Vulture). Her work is concerned with disability as a creative source. She has an impaired left hand from a previous car accident, and the primary vehicle in her pursuit is her electric vintage toy organ, an instrument she bought on eBay which suits her body and engages her disability on a compositional and performative level. Her debut full-length album, Breaking and Entering, featuring toy organ, voice, and electronic sampling of both sources was released in June 2020 on New Amsterdam Records, and has been praised by New Sounds as “a powerful response to something kind that is still too often stigmatized, but that Joyce has used as a creative prompt.” Molly’s creative projects have been presented and commissioned by Carnegie Hall, TEDxMidAtlantic, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Bang on a Can Marathon, Danspace Project, Americans for the Arts, National Sawdust, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, National Gallery of Art, Classical:NEXT, VisionIntoArt’s FERUS Festival, and featured in outlets such as Pitchfork, Red Bull Radio, WNYC’s New Sounds, I Care If You Listen, and National Sawdust Log.

Are you spinning your wheels with some aspect of cello technique? It is most likely that your issue—no matter what it is—needs to be solved at the level of the fundamentals, and the best way to practice those is with an effective warm up routine. A good warm up routine has many components: scales arpeggios, finger independence, shifting, string crossings, bowing styles, double stops, and high registers. At this Cello Clinic, we will look at all of these components to help you devise a routine with which you can start each day’s practice session that will help maximize your rate of advancement!

String Orchestra Camp
Sunday, June 19 - Friday, June 24, 2022
Click here for more information and registration

Since 1994, the UW-Whitewater summer camps have provided a highly regarded and intensive string camp to teenage string players from the Midwest and around the country!  Averaging over 100 campers per year, that is over 2500 times we have helped these young musicians have a memorable week of string playing that can fuel their progress for the entire academic year.  What's more, in order to keep our camp accessible to as many people as possible, our price continues to be significantly lower than many other such camps!  To celebrate 25 years of success, our theme this year is "Music as Celebration."  Many composers used music to help celebrate many joyous and triumphant occasions.  Furthermore, what would any celebration be without music?  UW-Whitewater hosts two concurrent string camps: a Junior Camp (for students entering grades 7-8) and a Senior Camp (for grades 9-12).   Activities for the two camps, except for recitals, will be held separately.  This year's theme will be Music as Celebration.

  • Junior Camp | Students entering grades 7-8th
  • Senior Camp | Students entering grades 9-12th

Limited to the first 150 registrants for both camps.
