U of L Collaborative Ensemble

Collaborative Duo

 

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.

Auditions

The collaborative courses are required for pianists and guitarists who are Music majors, but are also open to pianists or guitarists who can demonstrate proficiency on their instrument (an audition may be arranged by contacting the instructor). Instrumentalists or singers who are interested in participating as collaborative partners should also speak with the instructor for more information. 

Interested students should come to the first class meeting on Friday, September 6th at 2:00 pm in the Recital Hall, W570.

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.
