Debuting in 2018, the Tadioli Duo is comprised of violinist Suhashini Arulanandam and cellist Sybil Shanahan. They have offered concerts in the Ontario region, most recently presenting 9 highly successful outdoor concerts in the summer of 2020. Passionate about music education, the duo has given several workshops at public schools across the Southern Ontario and each maintain an active private teaching studio. They are frequent performers on the Chamber Music Mississauga roster, and are developing a recording project featuring all female composers. Most recently, the duo participated in an online tango music workshop with maestro Guillermo Rubino from Argentina. Drawing on musical inspiration form their own origins and professional activities as well as the Classical realm, the duo is committed to further fostering a love of classical music in the communities they engage with, and broadening the range and depth of what classical performance means to today's society.
A common element for both musicians is their claim to starting their musical education at the earliest stages in their lives. For Suhashini, her musical education led her to complete a Master’s Degree of Musical Performance at the Aaron Copland School (City University of New York, Queen’s College) and a Performance Diploma from the Glenn Gould School (Royal Conservatory of Music) in Toronto. Sybil completed her Bachelor of Music Performance at the Amsterdam Conservatory (Holland) and her Master’s Degree at the Conservatoire de Lausanne (Haute Ecole de Musique) in Switzerland. Both enjoy their active and varied performing schedules; Suhashini is a member of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra and the Windsor Symphony Orchestra. She also plays Baroque violin. Sybil formerly played with the piano chamber group Ensemble Vivant as well as running her event music company, Beaux Strings and freelancing with groups across Ontario. Both musicians run vibrant private teaching studios for both youth and adult learners.
