Violist Molly Gebrian has distinguished herself as an outstanding performer, teacher, and scholar throughout the US and Europe. Her love of contemporary music has led her to collaborate with many composers, often in premieres of works written for her. She has worked closely with the Ensemble Intercontemporain and Pierre Boulez for performances at the Lucerne Festival and she spent the 2011/2012 academic year in Paris to undertake an intensive study of contemporary music with violist/composer Garth Knox. Her other principal teachers include Peter Slowik, Carol Rodland, and James Dunham. Molly completed her Doctor of Musical Arts in viola performance from Rice University's Shepherd School of Music and also holds graduate degrees in viola performance from the New England Conservatory of Music, and Bachelors degrees from Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music, in both viola performance and neuroscience. She served as the Assistant Director for two interdisciplinary conferences on music and the brain while at Rice, has published papers dealing with music and neuroscience in the Journal of the American Viola Society, Frontiers in Psychology, Flute Talk Magazine, and The Strad. Her background in neuroscience gives her unique insight into how the brain learns and how musicians can best use this information to their advantage in the practice room. Given this expertise, she is a frequent presenter on topics having to do with music and neuroscience at conferences and universities in the US and abroad. During the summer, she is on faculty at the National Music Festival and Montecito International Music Festival, and has also taught at the Sewanee Summer Music Festival. After teaching for five years at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, she joined the faculty at the Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona in the fall of 2019.

Proud of you, Taylor Maresca!Taylor Maresca (BFA, '22) is the new morning reporter for WBTW News13 CBS in Myrtle Beach! This past semester Maresca earned her BFA in Musical Theatre, a BA in Communications, and double minored in Public Relations and Journalism. During her time at UArizona she worked for UATV 3 News, wrote for Arizona Daily Wildcat and wrote as a staff writer for Arizona Arts - among many other roles on and off campus.

“Being a journalist, like being an artist, is so fulfilling because everyday I get to tell stories. Stories that impact communities and inspire change." says Maresca. "I’m loving every second of being the morning reporter at News13 and connecting with the lovely community of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (even though it comes with a 2:30 a.m. wake up time 😉)."

Congratulations, Taylor! Bear Down!
