SymbiosisDuo, an accomplished tuba/euphonium duet, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20 in the Recital Hall of Coastal Carolina University's Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts, as part of its 2011 tour.
Comprised of music professors Stacy Baker on tuba and Gail Robertson on euphonium, SymbiosisDuo, accompanied by Deborah Eastwood on cornet/flugelhorn and Alex Thio on piano, will play an eclectic program that includes selections such as "Ave Maria," "I Got Your Bach" and "Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro)."
Baker and Robertson formed SymbiosisDuo in 2007 to showcase the tuba/euphonium pairing as a performance medium and to promote and disseminate new works for this unique combination of brass instruments.
