Carrie Vecchione and Rolf Erdahl, a husband and wife instrumental duo, will visit the Brainerd Public Library on Thursday, September 20 at 11:30am. They will present a recital of music through the ages up to the engaging new repertoire composed for them, with classical crossovers infused with jazz, tango, and folksongs. Hear Carrie Vecchione, oboe/English horn, and Rolf Erdahl, double bass, perform music that "grabs your ear as the ink dries, and sends you out the door humming a new tune!”
Together they create beautiful classical music as they teach about their genre of music including chamber orchestras and symphony orchestras. They are committed to perform as arts advocates bringing music into the community. They both have extensive performing and teaching experience including performances at many schools through the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's CONNECT Program, Young Audiences of Minnesota, and the Duluth-Superior Symphony's Community Engagement Program. Carrie and Rolf are also an award-winning performing duo. They’ve worked with many composers to create music for the oboe and bass to play together and have quite a repertoire built up.
