Solazur is a Denver-based duo formed in 2016 out of a shared desire to offer captivating and intimate performances of cello and guitar music. The duo engages audiences with the diverse canon of existing music for the ensemble as well as brand new compositions, supporting and advocating for a thriving culture for living composers through innovative and collaborative work. Their debut recital included the premiere of a multi-movement work Azur by composer Tomás Peirre-Serrate. This past April, they traveled to Los Angeles to workshop Azur with Tomás and perform at UCLA thanks to a crowdfunding campaign.
The new music ensemble Nebula Ensemble invited Solazur to perform as guest artists in their inaugural summer festival, beginning in late June. Recently, the group was accepted to be ensemble-in-residence at the 2018 Zodiac Music Academy & Festival in Cote d'Azur, France, and traveled there in July to perform and workshop. Solazur hopes to share their creative process with the young people of Denver through school outreach performances and presentations, and as active educators.
