Departure Duo (Spring 2016) Eddie Kass
Departure is a duo made up of soprano Nina Guo and double bassist Edward Kass. As a duo, they primarily perform music by living composers, including works written specifically for the ensemble. Departure is committed to bringing contemporary music to wider audiences, from seasoned concertgoers to young musicians of all levels. This spring, Departure Duo is organizing a series of concerts and educational events in their home towns of San Francisco and Los Angeles. Through in-school performances and coachings, Nina and Eddie will show young musicians how “traditional” training can serve as the foundation for experimental expression.
