Violin duo Miolina has been called “talented and dedicated” by Arts Birmingham, and described as displaying “aggressive and virtuosic prowess” with “brilliance of sound, technical mastery, and stunning expressivity” by I CARE IF YOU LISTEN. A member of New Music USA’s Impact Cohort, Miolina has been attracting audiences since their inception in 2012. Mioi and Lynn are keen on creating and shaping the violin duo repertoire in the 21st century. To date, Miolina has premiered 34 violin duos. They have had successful shows in NYC at venues such as the National Opera Center, Tenri Cultural Institute, le Poisson Rouge, Spectrum and more.
They’ve also performed concerts around the U.S. and abroad in Birmingham, Chicago, Los Angeles, Pensacola, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington DC, Paris, and Tokyo. Miolina has participated in festivals/residencies/series including Avaloch Farm, Birmingham New Music Festival, Composers Concordance, Electronic Music Midwest, NWEAMO, North/South Consonance, and Sonic Circuits.
