About Us

Tedesco Duo is a lively flute and guitar duo from New England comprised of Arielle Burke on flute and Catherine O'Kelly on guitar. They perform repertoire from all eras, with an emphasis on contemporary music.


Arielle and Catherine began performing together in 2011 as students at The Hartt School. Their first performance was of Sonatina for Flute and Guitar by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, which is what prompted them to name the ensemble "Tedesco Duo." They have since performed the works of composers such as Mauro Giuliani, Astor Piazzolla, Phillip Houghton, Libby Larsen, Roberto Sierra, and Máximo Diego Pujol.

Tedesco Duo has been praised for their communicative playing and for performing repertoire that is colorful and spirited.
