Anna and Isabel have already presented this initiative at the International Institute (Madrid, Spain), which was lauded as "this concert exhibits intelligence, wisdom, and artistry at the highest level" (El arte de la fuga). Upcoming concerts include An homage to poet Rafael Alberti, and A muller galega: homenaxe á través das artes

Guest Artist 
2Flutes: Pamela Sklar and Laura Falzon 
The duo 2Flutes is comprised of Laura Falzon and Pamela Sklar, two flutists who between them have performed a wide spectrum of works ranging from classical, contemporary, intercultural, rock, pop, folk and jazz and performed in concerts throughout the USA, Canada, France, Italy, England, Scotland, Malta, Finland, Greece, Mexico, Morocco, India and Japan. Steeped in distinctly varied musical backgrounds, they have come together to introduce, present, and perform a variety of music, akin to a musical hybrid, which features original compositions by composers from across the globe, and offers over six octaves of silver and wood flute sounds. 2Flutes’ culturally varied influences and their cumulative flutes’ wide ranges, textures and color contribute to innovative performances which engage and stimulate audiences from all walks of life.
