Introducing the Flarp Duo

September 20, 2010

Naomi Hoffmeyer and I first met at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in the fall of 2009. We were both searching for exciting new musical opportunities and I had been wanting to playing with a harpist for quite some time. I was thrilled to find her!

Lucky for us, the first piece we played together was Debussy’s Sonata for flute, viola and harp. One of the best classical pieces of all time, in my opinion. Since then, our violist has moved to New York, and we formed a flute and harp duo.

Alas, we had no name.  At our concert at Vi Gallery yesterday, however, we asked our audience for some help. We got lots of great suggestions, but the one we just couldn’t forget was “The Flarp Duo.” It’s just too funny to walk away from. We’re quirky, we’re fun, and we’re even a little weird- just like the name.

If the shoe fits…wear it!

Thank you to Vi Gallery for inviting us to perform in your beautiful space, and a big thanks to the audience for helping us come up with such a great name for our duo! Thank you so much for coming and supporting us yesterday; it was a beautiful event. For live recordings, visit our website or listen to a little sample here:

Faure Sicilienne for flute and harp

We’ll be performing next on October 18th at 4 pm at the Sequois Portola Valley.
