‘Music at the Library’ series performance by Sarah & Avah Girges

July 31 @ 3:00 pm

The Santa Maria Philharmonic presents the fourth concert of the ‘Music at the Library’ series, with a performance by Sarah & Avah Girges.

Piano Duo Avah and Sarah Girges, are the first place winners of the 2022 national MTNA Piano Duet competition. They have been performing as a duo for a little over 3 years and like to call themselves Soli Deo Gloria. Sisters Sarah (17 years old) and Avah (14 year old) began playing for fun as a change of pace from their rigorous solo repertoire. It became obvious from the start that this sister duo had a wonderful chemistry together and it soon turned into a passion. After playing for only 6 months together they entered the national MTNA Piano Duet competition and won 2nd place at the national level. They have placed first in numerous competitions as a duet team such as the Chicago International Music Competition and the Kings Peak International Music Competition.

They have been invited to perform in multiple venues, such as the Spokane public radio and the Bachfest Northwest. They currently live in the Seattle area with their parents, grandmother and 3 other siblings, who are also extremely musical. They began excelling at piano after studying with Dr. Lynne Garrett. Other notable teachers have been Hans Boepple and Barbara Miller. They are currently studying piano with Dr. Oksana Ejokina of Tacoma, WA.

This concert is free to the public, donations are accepted.
