Duomo is Ashley Tini and Emily Strachan. Despite living long distance, Duomo’s passion for sharing new repertoire keeps them active. Ashley and Emily enjoy working with composers who engage their audiences through deep listening, intimacy, and vulnerability. Duomo also partners with local communities and schools to educate and promote a greater musical awareness. Duomo’s mission is to create music that extends beyond the boundaries of sound and traditional performance practices. Our friends are our best collaborators. Ashley and Emily met while studying with Ji Hye Jung at the University of Kansas. Although both were drawn to the same unique percussion program, their backgrounds complement each other in their diversity. One being improvisation, exotica, and world music while the other in classical chamber music and orchestral repertoire.
