As we all know, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has seriously impacted the arts, and live performance across all genres. The Tadioli Duo has suspended all live performance for the time being, with great hopes for good health and lots of live music resuming in the summer 2021 season.
LIVESTREAM: Watch a 20 minute concert recorded at Sybil's home, presented by the Chamber Music Society of Mississauga. Click here to view.
The Tadioli Duo has been invited to create another video for CMSM in June 2021, due to the current lockdown regulations, the release date is pending.
MOBILE LIVE: The Tadioli Duo will be performing live for Seniors' Residences outdoors from a mobile concert stage. Late summer or Fall of 2021, dates pending.
GARDEN CONCERTS: The Tadioli Duo was privileged to present 9 outdoor garden concerts throughout the summer of 2020, while Covid restrictions were largely reduced. Many of these concerts were presented at private homes, but the Duo was pleased to received full funding from the Music Performance Trust Fund of the American Federation of Musicians for two of them.

The Tadioli Duo has two school presentations, designed for both younger and teenaged viewers. Each presentation has a run time of approximately 45 minutes, plus additional time for questions. Presentations for younger viewers include an introduction to our instruments and how they work, audience interaction with a simple rhythmic pattern and singing, plus several different accessible selections of music from the Classical, Folk and Popular world.
Presentations for middle school and high school students include a more in-depth look at techniques and historic approaches to the instruments and musical developments, as well as a bridging of worlds from the Baroque, Classical, Folk and Popular worlds. For a classroom sample, taken live from our presentation at Port Credit Secondary School, please see our video link here.
The Tadioli Duo prefers to perform unplugged whenever possible, however we do appreciate the use of a speaking microphone at all school events, and depending on the performance space, an amplification system may be required.
"Thank you, once again, for coming to Port Credit. You both played so beautifully and it was a special day for me as a Tadioli violin owner. the students and staff spoke very highly of your presentation (and playing). It was educational, engaging, and entertaining. Thank you, again, for a fantastic morning!"
