MN Duo 

MNDuo is a workshop for pianist/singer duos.  With an emphasis on collaboration and partnership, duos have the opportunity to participate in masterclasses, coachings, and seminars given by local and international artists, and will be introduced to a locally-established composer who will work with the duos on their music.  Also, duos will have free admission to all recitals, and 2 separate performing opportunities.

This is a fantastic program.. a dynamic, engaging, art and passion-filled program... At the risk of sounding too grandiose, participating in the program reminded me why I fell in love with song in the first place.. this was the perfect reminder of what it means to be passionate about your craft.

“The passion that each member of this festival (the coordinators, guest artists, duos, composers, and audience!) brings to their art is so raw, so vital, so unconditional, and so...human. The effect of creativity, at such a high concentration, in one short week, makes me want to...go out and create something from nothing.”
