Comprised of two members of The Cleveland Orchestra, The Cleveland Duo (Stephen Warner violin and Carolyn Gadiel Warner violin/piano) joined with internationally-acclaimed saxophonist, James Umble, to form a Grammy Award nominated ensemble that has been blazing trails in the world of classical chamber music with its unusual instrumental combination. The appealing programming consists of original repertoire, commissioned works by nationally acclaimed composers, and more traditional music transcribed specifically for them. The ensemble has appeared throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico in major chamber music venues, festival sites, universities and over the airwaves of National Public Radio and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
