Join us on December 10 at 8PM, as Brooklyn Duo performs as a special presentation of (mostly jazz) Live Music at The Betsy.
About the Artists in Residence:
Based in Brooklyn, NY and formed in 2014, Brooklyn Duo covers popular music with its own classical twist. The duo features cellist Patrick Laird (from Break of Reality), and pianist Marnie Laird. The married couple met in 2007 at the Kneisel Hall music festival in Blue Hill, Maine. As graduates of the Juilliard (Marnie) and Eastman (Patrick) conservatories, the duo covers music from Shakira’s “Empire” to John Legend’s “All of Me”. Most recently, the duo has also released “Chandelier” by Sia, “Am I Wrong” by Nico & Vinz, “Centuries” by Fall Out Boy, “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit, “Stay with Me” by Sam Smith, “Young and Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey, and “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift.
