Erin is a grew up in the North Quabbin. I asked for more background; here is her reply: "I was born and raised in Orange, MA. I attended the Orange Public Schools and got my start in my love of music in Music Appreciation Classes in Kindergarten with Mr. Kaplan. Like most kids from Orange at the time, I joined Mr. Bosco's concert band in 4th grade at Dexter Park and stayed with the band program all the way through my time at Mahar playing flute, piccolo, and even oboe when the band needed it. I attended local band festivals when I could, played in the Pit Orchestras at Mahar (most memorably the Wizard of Oz), and participated in the Orange Community Band through my junior year of college." And as noted above she went to college at UMass Amherst.
Andrew D'Antonio is a Western Massachusetts-based pianist, teacher, and coach. Primarily a chamber musician, he seeks out a diverse range of repertoire, performing everything from Haydn and Janáek to Messiaen and Sciarrino.
