MSCA Featured Artists
A world-renowned violist and commentator for National Public Radio,
Miles Hoffman tours regularly with the American Chamber Players.
Sponsored in part by the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council, Hoffman performed an
all-Bach concert in Holloway Hall Auditorium for MSCA students and community
members. He also conducted an afternoon master class for orchestra students.
It was an honor to welcome Joyce J. Scott, an internationally
known visual and performing artist to the Maryland Summer Center for the Arts
for a third season.
A native of Baltimore, Scott has been sculpting and painting for over 40 years.
She also specializes in weaving, quilting, beadwork and glass.
Her exhibit, “Joyce J. Scott: Kickin’ It With the Old Masters,” drew more than
108,000 visitors to the Baltimore Museum of art in 2000. An updated version is
currently touring U.S. museums through 2007. Scott shared her expertise in a
residency with visual arts students and presented an interdisciplinary
performance for all students.
Whether working with original material or adapting the works of Edgar Allen Poe
and Italo Calvino, Ramesh Mayyappan creates visual theatre
accessible to both deaf and hearing audiences. His theatrical knowledge and
stunningly creative visual vocabulary was shared center wide providing yet
another perspective on art and artmaking.
Founded in 1991, the Washington Chu Shan Chinese Opera Institute has focused its efforts on promoting high quality, traditional Chinese performing arts. Acting students experienced the pageantry of Chinese opera, including costumes and makeup, and later performed with this world class group.
