UPDATE: We are thrilled to have been accepted to two international conferences for summer 2022: The International Congress of Voice Teachers (ICVT) in Vienna, Austria and ClarinetFest in Reno, Nevada.
Sorores Duo has been performing together for over ten years. They have built a repertoire of works with a particular emphasis on contemporary music, as well as music related to the Holocaust. Programs range from serious to whimsical. Their "signature" piece, The Child in the Hole by William Vollinger, was the springboard for their collaboration.
Having performed throughout the United States, the ensemble features works by Wollinger, Jacob, Seiber, Greaves, Schubert, Laitman, Gordon, Tate, and Roe, to name a few.
In 2020 Sorores Duo commissioned American composer Gwyneth Walker to write a piece for them. The result of this collaboration is two existing cycles for soprano now have newly composed clarinet parts. In summer 2021 the duo collaborated with pianist Gail Novak on a recording of these commissioned pieces along with other works by Gwyneth Walker titled: Voices of Our Land. The recording will be available for purchase in 2022.
Sandra and Amy attended undergraduate school together at Truman State University and were sisters in the women’s fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota. The name “sorores” is Latin for “sisters,” from which their professional collaboration was born. They have performed for three National Conventions of their fraternity as well as the College Music Society. Their first recording is available for purchase (click the album cover above) or digital download.
The Sorores Duo has developed a unique masterclass approach where singers and clarinetists meet together in a session with Dr. Rosine and Dr. Mosteller. Students are able to use information from the sessions and apply it to their own instrument.
The Sorores Duo is available for recital and masterclass engagements. Please fill out the contact form and we will get back to you!
