San Agustin Duo
Emma Banfield, violin
Diana Dumlavwalla, piano
Part of McMichael Sunday Concert Series
Diana and Emma met while studying together at Wilfrid Laurier University. Their debut performance as the San Agustin Duo at the Burgos International Music Festival in Spain was met with enthusiastic response and they have continued to garner praise for their warm sound, tight ensemble, and sincerity in performance. Their work has led to repeat invitations at several performance venues.
As faithful and sensitive performers of the standard repertoire for violin and piano, the San Agustin Duo also maintains a commitment to the performance of new compositions, especially by Canadian composers. Their performance at Gallery 345 in Toronto highlighting Canadian female composers is included in the Canadian Music Centre’s Ann Southam Archive.
In addition to their international work, they have performed across Ontario including recitals at Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Toronto’s Hart House, the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society, University of Windsor, University of Guelph, Queen’s University and other established concert venues in Toronto, Kitchener, Waterloo and Guelph.
