Divesh Karamchandani and Elizabeth Hall are a dynamic percussion duo. Their mutual passion for percussion chamber music and excitement for collaborating with composers and other musicians led them to create this duo. They enjoy fostering the creation of new works and are eager to explore the wide palettes of sounds available to percussionists.
Featured on the program will be two new world premiere works by bay area composers, Joseph Colombo and Nicholas Pavkovic. Nicholas will be joining us onstage as a featured guest. Divesh and Elizabeth will also include some of their favorite percussion duo music, mostly written by modern living composers including Wally Gunn, Ivan Trevino, Dave Samuels, and David Friedman. They will be playing a wide array of percussion instruments ranging from mallet instruments like marimba and vibraphone to a plethora of drums, wood blocks, flowerpots, gongs, cymbals, cowbells, etc.
Sit back or lay back on the beds (yes there are beds, it is a mattress company after all), and enjoy their inaugural show as a duo! Also, hangout after the show for a reception and meet-and-greet with the artists.

About the Artists:
Divesh and Elizabeth met at the Zeltsman Marimba Festival in 2011 and bonded over their love of the marimba. Their friendship grew and their paths crossed again when they both moved to San Francisco and attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music for their masters degrees. They performed together throughout college and professionally with diverse groups and concerts including Mercury Soul, One Found Sound, The Hot Air Music Festival, Post:Ballet, Calvary Choir, Golden Gate Symphony, and Cantare Con Vivo and are looking forward to continuing their creative collaboration with this duo.
