Description

Jason J. Moy, harpsichord
Jason Moy holds degrees in harpsichord and Early Music performance from McGill University in Montreal, where his primary teachers and mentors included Hank Knox, Luc Beauséjour, and the late Bruce Haynes. Jason is a native of Chicago, and a faculty member at the DePaul University School of Music, where he is Director of the Baroque Ensemble, Coordinator of Mixed Chamber Music, and an adjunct harpsichord instructor. He has performed as a soloist and continuo player with ensembles across the United States, Canada and Europe, with notable appearances at the Boston Early Music Festival Fringe Series, and the York Early Music Festival in the United Kingdom.

Jason is a founding member of the award-winning period instrument ensemble Trio Speranza, and was recently named Artistic Director of Ars Musica Chicago. As one of the Chicago area's most sought-after early keyboard specialists, Jason frequently appears with such noted ensembles as the Bach Week Festival Orchestra, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Music of the Baroque, Newberry Consort, and Chicago Chamber Musicians. He has also been featured in live performances on ABC7 and CBS2 television, BBC Radio 3, and is regularly heard on Chicago’s classical radio station, WFMT98.7, both in studio and as part of the Dame Myra Hess International Concert Series at the Chicago Cultural Center.

Shirley Hunt, viola da gamba
Praised by The Strad as “stylish and accomplished,” internationally respected viola da gamba player Shirley Hunt embraces an eclectic musical life as a soloist, chamber musician, and continuo player. Ms. Hunt has performed and recorded with the nation's leading period instrument ensembles including Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Musica Angelica, Portland Baroque Orchestra, and Bach Collegium San Diego. Ms. Hunt performs regularly at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the renaissance ensemble Sonnambula, and appears in recital annually at the Museum of Jurassic Technology, where she is an artist in residence. Originally from Portland, Oregon, Ms. Hunt was born into a musical family and is the younger sister of the late mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson.
