December Luna Music is a musical project created by Jessica Rose Price, violist and composer/arranger. Rose has fourteen years of musical experience and exposure, starting with viola lessons from Professor Paul Windt of Muhlenburgh College in Pennsylvania. She received private vocal instruction from Lunda Cornelius, for five years, and was also involved with Pennsylvania Youth Theater in dance and theater. She graduated from the Lehigh Valley Performing Arts High School in Pennsylvania and was a violist for the Young People's Philharmonic & Moravian College Orchestra; she then went on to be the second chair violist for the Richmond Philharmonic in Virginia.
In the beginning of 2011, Rose was the violist and assistant recording producer of Gypsy Cat Project, a guitar/viola duo who performed in Tucson and Las Vegas. By June she started her solo music career, began composing, and tutoring viola students. Rose performed at many nightlife hot spots in Tucson, including People's Imports, La Cocina, The Hut, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and at the Fox Theater with the Civic Orchestra. She also was a special guest on The Duke and Cat Show- Access Tucson, and The Breakfast Club hosted by BSceneLive. Her unforgettable viola playing & vocals have been heard alongside several other bands, including Dr. Meatpie, Cinder Bridge, Top Dead Center, Heaven's Gators, and One Heartbeat. Pagan Radio Network in California, CauldronFM in the UK, and No Label AZ Radio, circulate air time for Rose's original songs. December Luna Music has performed at Jimmy's Place, Allentown, the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Whitehall, PA and with the Moravian College Orchestra. Recently her demo version of "The Golden Rule" was featured on the Hermetic Library's Magick Music and Ritual 4. December Luna Music was also featured on Emmaus Patch's Band of the Week. Currently Rose is performing with the East Stroudsburg University Orchestra, the HeartStrings Viola Ensemble, and the acoustic band, The Price is Rice.
