Molly Hennig

Molly Beth Hennig is a singer and songwriter who wishes to bridge the gap between classical and popular music. Her varied musical experiences have led her to receive scholarships such as the Mark Gruenwald Scholarship for interdisciplinary arts, Orville C. Sherman Music Scholarship, and Dorothy “Dottie” Adams Memorial Music Scholarship.

Molly’s repertoire consists of classical pieces, musical theatre, experimental music, jazz and songs of World War One. She has performed as Laurie in Aaron Copland’s opera "The Tender Land," The Beggar Woman in "Sweeney Todd," Mother Abbess in "The Sound of Music," Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz," and Bellomy in "The Fantasticks." Her knowledge of WWI songs led to her performance in the opening of the Brown County Museum WWI exhibit ""Loyalty and Dissent."" She also performed alongside Dan Chouinard as a part of WWI Remembrance Day in New Ulm, MN. in 2017. Molly has won the UW Oshkosh Music Department’s Honors Recital, UW Oshkosh Concerto Competition and the Richard Keith Porter Memorial Scholarship, all for her classical work.

Furthermore a participant in research and creative work, Molly was awarded the Summer 2019 Undergraduate Research Grant for her scholarly work on Robert Schumann's "Frauenliebe und Leben," as well as the 2019 Provost's award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity alongside violinist Isabel Sorebo for their performance of Eric Whitacre's "Five Hebrew Love Songs."

As a songwriter, Molly was invited in 2019 by the New York Singing Teachers Association to showcase her original music for Mary Alouette/Alarke's masterclass ""From the Shower to the Stage."" Molly premiered her original contemporary musical theatre piece, ""Lucille,"" as part of Peter Michael von der Nahmer’s concert granted by the McKnight Foundation in 2017. She won Martin Luther College’s Meilhan P. Zahn memorial scholarship for writing a sacred hymn text and has written additional hymn texts for both the anniversary services of St. John’s Lutheran Church and Emanuel Lutheran church in Appleton and New London, Wisconsin. Molly writes collaboratively with the Oshkosh Songwriting Club and is in the process of writing her first LP, ""Dear Angel,"" which combines newly arranged classical works along with original songs.

Molly is pursuing a Bachelor’s of Music in vocal performance and music industry with an emphasis in music business and recording technology, all alongside a minor in theater. Her senior recital featuring the works of Schumann and Debussy, as well as her own compositions, will be performed in Fall 2020.
