The Kimoni Duo
General Event Information
January 12, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Since its founding in 2008, the Kimoni Duo has been dedicated to performing standard and newly composed literature for harp and flute. Hailed by the local media as “two highly gifted musicians”, the Duo has performed both in recital and in concert with orchestras throughout the United States and abroad, touring South America as featured guest performers of the 25th International Festival of Flutists in 2010. Kimoni is a dynamic and versatile ensemble with decades of combined professional experience. Its members Monica Hargrave (harp), and Kimberly Felder-Scott (flute), work hard on their wide-spanning repertoire from Baroque to Contemporary, Pop to Jazz. Both musicians are classically trained concert artists in their own right and bring this level of attention to detail, passion and skill to the Duo’s music. Their wide range of music created a colorful palette of musical expressions.
