Fes­ti­val pre­sents mu­sic duo

The Sentinel-Record - - ARTS, ETC. -

The Hot Springs Mu­sic Fes­ti­val will present a con­cert by the piano- vi­o­lin duo Kanade at 3 p. m. March 2 at Garvan Wood­land Gar­dens’ Anthony Chapel.

The duo owes its for­ma­tion to the 2010 sea­son of the Hot Springs Mu­si­cal Fes­ti­val, where violinist Mao Omura and pi­anist Erika Tazawa first met. The two, who are both Ja­panese na­tives and as­pir­ing to fur­ther their mu­si­cal ca­reers in the United States, had much in com­mon, in­stantly be­came friends, and started per­form­ing to­gether. Dur­ing their in­au­gu­ral sea­son, the duo ap­peared in con­cert se­ries span­ning the north­east U. S., where au­di­ences warmly wel­comed them.

The name Kanade was in­spired by the Ja­panese verb “kanade- ru,” which means “to ex­press one’s spirit through mu­sic.” Kanade strives to cre­ate a mu­si­cal at­mos­phere that res­onates with and com­mu­ni­cates to the core emo­tions of their au­di­ence, of­fer­ing the most per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble.

Tick­ets are $ 15 and $ 5 for stu­dents, and may be re­served by call­ing the fes­ti­val at 623- 4763.
