With their combined experience they have toured orchestras across continents, released award-winning musical works, received rave reviews for their stage shows, and designed celebrated community engagement programs. Their work has been acknowledged through multiple awards, excellent media coverage, and thorough evaluations of touring productions and workshop programs by their peers and audiences.
