Luminous Voices is excited to collaborate with Sara Hahn and Sarah Gieck -- also known as Green Banana Flute Studios -- when we take to the stage for Leap of Faith on Sunday 25 February! They will be showcased in the world premiere of Sea Dreams by Peter-Anthony Togni, which was commissioned by both Luminous Voices and Sara Hahn, with support from Paul Brown and the Canada Council for the Arts.
Green Banana Flute Studios is a partnership of world class flutists who recognize the need for a new perspective in the music industry, and strive to provide classical music products, education and live performances that prioritize and promote well-being in the pursuit of musical excellence.
After around a decade of separate, successful professional music careers, Sara Hahn and Sarah Gieck decided to join forces to create a new approach to learning, teaching and performing music. Together they have created a thriving flute studio in Calgary, with plans to launch a wellness-based flute retreat, and chamber music festival this summer in Nanton, AB. See www.gbflutes.com for details.
Sara and Sarah have performed as a duo throughout Alberta, performing concerts with the University of Lethbridge, the Instrumental Society of Calgary, and in countless outreach concerts. They recently recorded Pathways by Efrain Amaya and Curmudgeon and Lark by Albertan composer Arthur Bachmann for Sara Hahn’s debut album, to be released in September of 2018.
