GCG presents: Siroko Duo (music of our time)

Siroko Duo partners with the Guerrilla Composers Guild for three world premieres by Nick Benavides, Emily Shisko, and Michael Kropf, and works by Lucas Floyd and Emma Logan that combine music, technology, and culture to present music of our time. Reception with the composers and musicians will follow the performance.

About the artists:
Siroko Duo (pronounced sah-rock-o) is comprised of San Francisco flutists Victoria Hauk and Jessie Nucho. Sharing a passion for commissioning and performing new works, Victoria and Jessie formed the duo in 2015 to record duets by Kyle Randall and Lucas Floyd and continue to actively perform works by (mostly) living composers. Siroko Duo is excited to be collaborating with the Helia Music Collective in Spring 2017, celebrating music by women composers. Both Jessie and Victoria studied with Tim Day at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
