Duo Piano Group

The DCA Duo Piano Group is an enthusiastic group of accomplished amateur pianists who play together for fun and to continue their musical education.

The DCA duo-pianist members practice weekly in Sandra Shaw Murphy’s Silvermine Studio, and perform twice-yearly concerts to help support the mission of the DCA. The group also performs for community groups and elder care facility residents.
