Fredell Lack Legacy Violin Series: Joyce Hammann
Sunday, January 21, 2018
2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us at the Moores School of Music for the Fredell Lack Legacy Violin Series recital featuring Joyce Hammann!
Equally at home on the concert stage, in a jazz club or in front of 17,000 screaming fans at a rock concert, Joyce Hammann's musical versatility and virtuosity remarkably distinguish her from the rest. Her performances have been hailed as "splendid soloing" and as having a "sweet, rich tone" by The New York Times.
Performing and recording with such artists as Paul McCartney, Sting, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen, Joyce's discography includes John Zorn's String Quartets, Sam Zyman's Bashe, Uri Caine's Wagner and Venezia, Mozart Re-imagined and The Othello Syndrome, Michael Breckers' Grammy award-winning Wide Angles, Gil Goldstein's Under Rousseau's Moon, Ted Nash's Double Quartet and Mark Feldman's Book of Tells. Currently, she is the Concertmaster for the longest running show on Broadway “The Phantom of the Opera.” She continues to perform as a member of The Harlem Chamber Players, The Craftsbury Chamber Players (Vermont) and The Meeting House Players (Cape Cod).
About the Fredell Lack Legacy Violin Series

Many of her former students and mentees are featured as guest artists in the annual series.
