The Crescent Duo (Joanna and Kennen White), founded in 1985, can be heard on White Pine Music and Centaur Records. They have been featured at International Clarinet Association and the National Flute Association Conventions and many other venues. The Crescent Duo is especially involved in commissioning new works for flute and clarinet, both as a duo and as members (currently president and vice-president/secretary) of the Flute Clarinet Duos Consortium.
The Flute/Clarinet Duos Consortium (FCDC) was founded in 2000 by a group of professional flutists and clarinetists with the goal of enriching the limited chamber music repertoire for flute and clarinet through commissioning new works, arranging regional premieres by consortium members, encouraging the publication of new works, and seeking major donors for commissioning projects. Our commissions for flute, clarinet, and piano include Libby Larsen’s Barn Dances for flute, clarinet, and piano, Derek Bermel’s Twin Trio, and Valerie Coleman’s Portraits of Langston. The latest commission is Pierre Jalbert’s Triple Set.
