Versipel New Music Presents Byrne:Kozar:Duo

Join Versipel New Music for an amazing evening of song and sound with New York City’s Byrne:Kozar:Duo. Created by New York City based soprano Corrine Byrne and trumpeter Andy Kozar, the Byrne:Kozar:Duo presents historically informed performances of Baroque music for natural trumpet and soprano in addition to commissioning new works for modern trumpet and soprano. They have been said to create ‘an arresting symbiosis in their melding of voice and trumpet timbres’ (Textura) and that the ‘trumpet and voice seem to take on one another’s qualities’ (Bandcamp Daily). As individuals, Corrine has been called a ‘celebrated singer’ (Broadway World) and ‘a rising star’ (Arts Westchester) while Andy has been called a ‘star soloist’ (TimeOutNY) and ‘polished and dynamic, with very impressive playing’ (Baltimore Sun). Combining their strengths as performers and interpreters of both early and modern music, the Byrne:Kozar:Duo has commissioned new works by composers including Reiko Futing, Paula Matthusen, David Smooke, Scott Worthington and Scott Wollschleger.

Their March 14th New Orleans Debut will feature works by Scott Wollschleger, David Smooke, Rob Deemer, Scott Worthington and a world premiere piece by Versipel New Music’s assistant director Philip Schuessler.
