Terra Voce is known for lively and creative programs combining the diverse and the unexpected. Cellist Andrew Gabbert and flutist Elizabeth Brightbill thrill audiences with their virtuosity, engaging, conversational style of presentation, and their genre-expanding programs that explore a wide range of musical styles, traditions, and cross-cultural influence. Contrary to what most would expect from a flute and cello, their arrangements test the limits of what is possible on just two instruments.
In addition to numerous performances on college campuses and community concert series, Terra Voce has appeared on the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center, in the Christ Chapel Chamber Series at New York City ’s Riverside Church, and as finalists in the National Flute Association’s Chamber Music Competition. Along with three other flute and cello duos, Terra Voce has formed a commissioning circle and premiered this consortium’s first commission, Dviraag by Asha Srinivasan in 2009. Subsequently, they performed this work at the 2010 Society of Composers National Conference, to much acclaim. Terra Voce is on the roster for the Virginia Commission for the Arts Residency Program. Their CD The Frost Is All Over was selected as an “Editor’s Pick” on CD Bab
