Director: Dr. Deanna Oye

This ensemble of pianists and guitarists partner with singers and instrumentalists to perform popular sonatas, showpieces, opera arias, and art songs. As duos, they study the subtleties of language and poetry, acoustics and balance; bringing their music to life in the moment of performance.


The collaborative courses are required for pianists and guitarists, but are open to any instrumentalists or singers who are interested in participating.

There is no audition, but interested students can come to the first class meeting on Friday, September 7 at 2:00 pm.

Rehearsal Times & Location

Fridays from 2:00-3:50 pm in the University Recital Hall (W570), with duo coaching times outside of the class meeting times.
