Jason J. Moy, harpsichord & organ

 

Harpsichordist Jason J. Moy is the Artistic Director of Ars Musica Chicago, and one of the most sought-after early keyboard specialists in the Midwest. He is as passionate about teaching as he is performing, and serves on the faculties of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Mead Witter School of Music, the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, and DePaul University, where he held the School of Music’s first-ever endowed chair as Monsignor Kenneth J. Velo Distinguished Professor during the 2021-22 academic year. He received his own training in harpsichord and Early Music performance at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and is grateful to consider Hank Knox, Ketil Haugsand, Andrew Lawrence-King, and the late Bruce Haynes among his most influential mentors and teachers. 

 

Jason is a founding member of the award-winning period instrument ensemble Trio Speranza, and principal keyboardist of the Bach Week Festival Orchestra. He has performed as a soloist and continuo player throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, with notable appearances at the Boston Early Music Festival, the York Early Music Festival (UK), and on the International Music Foundation’s Dame Myra Hess and Rush Hour Concert Series in Chicago.
