READ THE PRESS RELEASE: Mallarmé 2024 Dynamic Duos Announcement FINAL

What is Dynamic Duos? In the fall of 2020, Mallarmé’s board spearheaded a new directive to diversify offerings both musically and via the personnel who perform in our concerts. Couldn’t our performances better reflect our community while keeping a high standard of performance?

The goal of the Dynamic Duo Call for Talent is to discover new (or new to us) North Carolina musical talent and to expand on the style and genre of our usual programming. North Carolina musicians of any type, including jazz, folk, and rock were asked to apply, especially members of the LBGTQIA+, African American and Latinx communities. Applicants were asked to propose a 60-minute program and to provide artist bios and musical examples of the specific artists.  Performers were chosen on the strength of their proposed program, musical samples and, most importantly, the way they interact with one another. Four groups were picked to perform this year – 3 during June 2024 as part of the Dynamic Duo Mini-Festival, and the last group will perform in the fall.
