Duo Percussion, the partnership of Brennan Connolly and Dave Robilliard, is excited to have been selected to perform a Keynote Concert at the annual Ontario Music Educators’ Association’s Conference in November. Some past Keynote Concert presenters include the Canadian Brass, Cadence, Orchestra London Canada, and the Ontario Provincial Honour Band. In addition to their concert at this year’s conference entitled PRIMO 11, Duo will also present three workshops covering different aspects of percussion education.
The workshops will focus on percussion accessories, care and maintenance of percussion instruments, and an introduction to concert percussion in elementary school. Duo is really looking forward to being such a large part of PRIMO 11!
Duo has been entertaining both public audiences and school audiences across the province for the past three years. They have performed at chamber festivals and concert halls as well as a large number of schools in Ontario. Having been brought up in the Ontario education system, Brennan and Dave love having the opportunity to give back. They are hopeful that they will be able to musically inspire audiences and children in the same way that their teachers inspired them!
