As performers, Carlos & Brennen are taking a decidedly different approach to entertaining instrumental music lovers in the Sacramento region. "We hope to bring a new awareness to non-traditional music" says Brennen. "We aim to go beyond the well-known composers and pieces by choosing works that are fresh and new, both to us and our audiences. We will also feature original music we composed." Some of the composers in their repertoire include Wilson Osborne, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, and local composer Cody Bennett.
Most recently Carlos & Brennen won First Prize in the Chamber Music Group C at the Golden Classical Music Awards. As part of their prize the duo has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall this March. They are excited to bring their music to a wider audience through their public performances.
Through their performances, Carlos and Brennen also hope to highlight the experience of minorities in the arts, while conveying uplifting social messages. "We aim to provide thought and communicate the ideas of peace, tolerance, and unity" says Brennen. "These universal values are embodied in all the themes for our positive celebrations of music and life.
Both Carlos and Brennen perform on traditional orchestral instruments to present an exciting tonal experience to their audience. While upholding tradition in that sense, the duo is not afraid to bring the scores to life in their own distinct style. "We want people to go home thinking the music was both touching and passionate," says Brennen.
