Departure is a Boston-based soprano and double bass duo comprised of Nina Guo and Edward Kass. Committed to expanding the repertoire for the “high-low” partnership, Departure commissions and performs new works. Nina and Eddie are particularly interested in how extended technique and theatricality can expand the range of expression and engage audiences. Their growing repertoire features works by György Kurtág, Fred Lerdahl and Beat Furrer.
Departure firmly believes that new music can and should be accessible to all, and by encouraging dialogue with audiences, new music will not be viewed as a niche genre.
