The Durham-based Mallarmé Chamber Players, a 38-year-old chamber music ensemble based in Durham, NC has selected four duos as recipients of the Dynamic Duos: Call For Talent. The duos will each receive $1000 for their performance presented in concert by Mallarmé. Three of the winning ensembles will perform in various venues in Durham in three consecutive Tuesdays this June 2022 in what we are calling the “Dynamic Duos in Durham” mini-fest.
