Brought together by a chamber collaboration in 2012, flutist Lara Deutsch and harpist Emily Belvedere immediately recognized their unique and powerful musical chemistry on stage, as well as their mutual passion for performing duo music. They have been featured as soloists with the McGill Symphony Orchestra and have completed several recording projects, mostly notably a set of music videos for noncerto.

They will be presenting works by Debussy, Morlock, Schafer, and more!
