As a performer, you are a curator of culture. You choose which composers get lifted up, and whether or  not they should all be men. It is an awesome responsibility. Recently, a lot of brilliant people have trusted me to convey their most personal and sincere musical thoughts. And so, to kick things off,  Duo Noire is headed to St. Louis to premiere new works written for us by the truly inspiring composer/performers Clarice Assad and Dr. Courtney Bryan. We’ve been working SO hard because they’ve written the music we’ve always wanted to play. I hope the wider guitar world will embrace it. Amen. HERE WE GO! #courtneybryan #clariceassad #stl #classicalguitar #duonoire
