They have each performed all over the world with many notable acts in traditional and contemporary acoustic music. Flynn studied Music at Dartington College of Arts in Devon, England and at Mills College in Oakland, California and now teaches in the Music Department at Keene State College in New Hampshire, as well as The Music Emporium in Lexington, Massachusetts. Duncan is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, teaches privately, and is collecting accolades for his performances; traditional, jazz, classical, and more. This concert will be held in the Atrium.

March 23, 2014: Flute and Harp Duo

The 2014 Concerts at the Crane Winter/Spring series closes with what promises to be a joy-filled performance by Vanessa Holroyd (flute) and Barabara Poeschl-Edrich(harp).

Vanessa and Barbara have performed together as freelancers for various local ensembles for the past ten years. Their duo work together began in 2012, when they were invited to prepare a program for the opening of an exhibit of the art of Roger Kizik at the Dedee Shattuck Gallery in Westport, MA. The program was entitled "Bold Colors, Bright Sounds!" and was designed to be a reaction to the vibrancy of Kizik's paintings. The flute and harp can convey a broad range of musical color and style. They will select pieces from their favorite works and present a lively, fun program to welcome in the Spring! The following preview was filmed during a recent visit to QATV:
