Happy!

Igudesman & Joo

Happiness! Is that not what we are all looking for? Well, look no further, because classical music’s comedy megastars Igudesman and Joo are brining their hilarious brand of musical mayhem to Winston-Salem with this unmissable show entitled, simply, Happy. The ultra-virtuosic violin and piano duo have reached an audience of millions thanks to their brilliant YouTube videos that combine all your favourites from Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky (often all at the same time) with their own signature humour. The list of artists Igudesman and Job have worked with read like a GRAMMY awards list – everyone from Billy Joel and Hans Zimmer to John Malkovich.

Galaxies In Her Eyes will make its world debut at the High Point University Culp Planetarium on April 1, 2, and 3, 2022.

This short, family-friendly opera tells the story of a young girl who dreams of going to the stars. She imaginatively weaves together the stories of astronomical pioneers Annie Jump Cannon, Katherine Johnson, and Ada Lovelace, whose work helps to make that journey possible. Across time and space, she discovers a sisterhood of science which is defined by collaboration, perseverance, a fascination with the unknown – and the importance of doing your math homework.

Galaxies In Her Eyes is made possible by generous support from the HPU Department of Music, the Winston-Salem Symphony, The National Science Foundation, the HPU Cultural Programs Committee, and the Stephen and Linda Stone family.

Synopsis: 12-year-old Eden, a math and science whiz, dreams of traveling to Mars. But her dreams get derailed when she loses her mother unexpectedly. In the midst of her despair, a young Ada Lovelace appears with her flying machine designs, preparing to visit her own convalescing mother. Applying their math and science skills, Eden and Ada journey through space and time to find their mothers. Their adventures lead them to famed scientists Katherine Johnson and Annie Jump Cannon, who help them on their quest using their groundbreaking discoveries that changed the world. The opera concludes as adult Eden awakens on Mars.
