– In Sterio will bring its ground-breaking flute performances to Clarke University on Tuesday, Sept. 9, as part of the Arts at Clarke series.
Considered pioneers in their field, Shivhan Dohse and Erica Peel, Miyazawa artists, are fearless musicians, always pushing the limits in innovation. Classically trained, yet stylistically unique, their performances fuse virtuosic flute playing with original and eclectic cross-cultural music for an electrifying and powerful presentation of sound. Their vision challenges convention as they draw inspiration from rock, jazz, classical, latin, funk, folk, world and electro styles with a sound that has been described as “two flutes – one brain.”
Their performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Jansen Music Hall on the Clarke campus. Admission is $10 for the general public; free to the Clarke community.
Peel is currently the piccoloist with the Omaha Symphony, and holds the position of second flute with the Lincoln Symphony. She has been a prizewinner in several competitions, including the Mid-Atlantic Young Artist Competition and the National Flute Association’s Orchestral Audition Competition. She has performed with the Chicago Symphony, Florida Philharmonic and the Music in the Mountains Festival. Dohse completed her bachelor of music degree at the University of Northern Iowa. While at UNI, Shivhan spent a semester studying Irish music at the University of College Cork in Cork, Ireland, as well as a summer in St. Petersburg, Russia, studying flute at the Herzan Pedagogical University. She is currently adjunct instructor of flute at Clarke University and Culver-Stockton College.
Individually, Peel and Dohse have performed with artists such as Diana Krall, Al Jarreau, Harry Connick Jr., Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Newton John, Chris Botti, Burt Bacharach, Martin Sexton, Jake Shimabukuro, Elvis Costello and Diane Reeves.
