Song of the Lark Duo
Song of the Lark Duo
Website: Song of the Lark
Song of the Lark is a flute and guitar duo- but not just any duo. Yes, we do play concerts, but our main focus is to play calming music for people who need some time to recharge and refresh. We play at venues for groups or individuals who just need to take some time for their own self-care.
This duo is made up of Sue Hurwitz- flutist, professional chamber musician, yoga teacher, and life coach, and Rahel- guitarist, vocalist, therapeutic healthcare musician, and award-winning composer, whose music we perform. The sky’s the limit for the venues where we appear-everything from yoga studios, community centers, private homes, schools, and even office settings.
RAHEL is a compassionate, insightful, sensitive, versatile award-winning performing guitarist, vocalist, recording artist, songwriter and healing artist. Her musical versatility highlights a wide reaching repertoire that is intelligent, musically sophisticated and ethnically diverse showcasing musical compositions that reflect an acoustic-eclectic-ambient-folk-ethnic-world-roots sound with hints of jazz, Middle East blends, further East mantras and sometimes driving rhythms and sometimes gentle sounds. Her guitar playing draws attention to beautiful finger styles and open chord progressions.
"Music has always been integral to my life. I was exposed to music at an early age. I studied solfeges, music theory and appreciation and learned to play on the piano, recorder and flute, but it was the acoustic guitar that was to become my main mode of musical expression. I've been an active working musician since 1976. I enjoy collaborating with other musicians and artists the most! Music has introduced me to worlds I might never have immersed in otherwise. The experience of living in two countries, Israel and the USA, each with a multitude of ethnic and cultural influences, contributes greatly to my composing and songwriting. It is through music that I experience joy and happiness and by way of music that I facilitate healing, growth and joy in others."
