Blue Violet Duo "excel at both extremes, from the nuanced and restrained to the incandescent and extravagant" (Stringendo magazine). Formed in 2013, the Chicago based duo was born of a friendship and musical kinship and enjoyed immediate recognition, winning a competition that led to their performance in Carnegie's Weill Hall in New York in February of 2014. Their 2018 debut album, American Souvenirs, received critical recognition and was selected as WFMT's "New Release of the Day" in October 2018. They have been invited for repeat performances on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series, most recently in January 2022. They enjoy bringing to light lesser-known, engaging works to surprise and delight audiences everywhere.
