About Melia Duo

Saxophone and Percussion Duo
Manchester
Public liability insurance of £1 million
The Melia Duo are a dynamic saxophone and percussion ensemble based in Manchester.

The Melia Duo is an exciting young chamber ensemble based in the North West. Both students of the Royal Northern College of Music, the duo benefit from individual and ensemble tuition from the Equivox Duo; Simone Rebello and Rob Buckland. As well as this, the duo has received coaching from chamber music specialists including Andy Scott, Melinda Maxwell, and Jeremy Young, and are looking forward to working with Laura Jellicoe and Matt Hunt in the near future Since bonding over a shared love of performance innovation, Hannah and Alex have begun to explore and expand the repertoire of the saxophone/percussion duo. Whilst this expansion has primarily been in arranging much of their own repertoire, the duo have recently begun to commission works from colleagues at the RNCM. They look forward to premiering their first commission in their upcoming season. The duo divide their time between the performance of well-established and newly commissioned repertoire in traditional concert settings, and more immersive, theatrical performances. Each present their own challenges, but both provide opportunity to showcase this unusual and vibrant ensemble.

Music B, 3 years ago

It may be an easy assumption to make that a duo consisting of saxophone and percussion will not yield much contrast in dynamics, colours, and genres. Both musicians, however, immediately dispelled any of these preconceptions...

I didn't know what to expect when I saw you in the programme, but I am so glad I came!
