They provide all their repertoire on both violin duo or violin & viola duo. Their repertoire ranges from Baroque to folk to modern rock, and they can arrange any song for their instrumentation, fitting it perfectly for your special event.
The pair met at the 2013 Brott Music Festival in Hamilton. There they joined their musical passions to discover and collaborate on obscure works written for two violins. Since then, they have thrived on exploring repertoire from Leclair and Glière to Billy Joel and Stan Getz. When not performing with classical ensembles on the island, such as Victoria Symphony, Sidney Classical Orchestra, or the Galiano Ensemble, the pair enjoy bringing their music to a plethora of demographics and occasions, whether it be putting on concerts at retirement homes, playing for weddings, flea markets, improvising and collaborating with folk & indie artists, or even busking Downtown Victoria. Tyson and Kathryn thrive on using their talents to provide live entertainment to the community. They have brought joy to their audiences due to their sizzling musical chemistry, their high standard of musical precision, and their unique fusion of class and funk. Most importantly, they value having fun, for themselves and listeners alike.
