About The Bowers-Fader Duo

Her diction and communicative skills were a masterclass in song interpretation while his accompaniment was sensitive and playful.  Ladd Boris, soundwordsight.com

Created in 2009, The Bowers-Fader Duo (www.bowersfaderduo.com) performs both classical and modern repertoire. Their ongoing mission is to promote new American art songs for mezzo and guitar, through commissions, performances, and recordings. To date, they have presented over 15 world premieres written for them. The Duo has played in New York City and across the US. Recent concerts have taken them to Washington State, Virginia, Vermont (Taconic Music), Pennsylvania (Classical Guitar Society of Northeastern Pennsylvania and Lehigh University), Make Music NY, Spectrum NYC, Tenri Cultural Institute, and Scholes Street Studio. Outreach activities for the Duo include free concerts each year for the Lighthouse Guild for the Blind, and Beginnings, a social program for seniors supported by Renewal Care. Last year, they recorded two song cycles by Paul Salerni, produced and recorded by Grammy winner, Adam Abeshouse, and recorded three songs by David Claman, professor at Lehman College. In the coming months, the Duo will be recording the music of Tim Mukherjee, performing as guests of Cygnus Ensemble, playing on a concert with Composers Concordance, returning to Vermont to perform with Taconic Music, and preparing for the Third Annual New American Art Song concert in October at Tenri Cultural Institute.
