Molly Joyce and bassoonist Midori Samson were recently featured alongside composer Svjetlana Bukvich and violinist Patti Kilroy on the Music With A View Festival at the Flea Theatre, curated by Kathleen Supove.
“A prodigious, 20-year old talent from Pittsburgh who now attends Juilliard, Joyce’s sound evokes a maturity suggestive of a musician and storyteller much older and more experienced.” – Erin E. McGuff, Woman Around Town
Contemporaneous was recently featured on Susan Scheid’s blog Prufock’s Dilemma, in a review of their concert, Just for Us. The concert consisted of six world premieres, including Molly Joyce’s Dollhouse.
“The strings lift the ensemble to harrowing heights…the music subtly changes as a long-lined lyricism threads its way through the tumult.” – Susan Scheid, Prufock’s Dilemma
