A seemingly unorthodox pairing, but an undeniably necessary sound

Saxophonist Seychelle Dunn-Corbin and Flutist Adrienne Baker came together in February 2016, both passionate about works for winds and accessibility to audiences and musicians alike.

Through research, transcription and commission, they have exposed audiences in the Greater Boston Area to America's diverse legacy, whether it be cutting new contemporary music, championing the works by women or works by people of color. 


Celebrating the rich tradition and legacy of African American Spirituals, they have commissioned Spirituals for Wind Duo from composer Anthony Green. This year they have championed through performance Oliver Nelson, William Grant Still, and others.

Future projects will include more commissions for their unorthodox, yet groovy, pairing as they continue to explore the full breadth of possibilities for their instruments. To learn more about NorthStar Duo, or to work with us, please contact us at northstarduo@gmail.com
