Plymouth, N.H.–Aubrie Dionne (flute) and Piper Runnion-Bareford (harp) will come together for a recital of Mozart’s concerto in C Major and works by Faure and Debussy at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6 at the Silver Center for the Arts, Smith Recital Hall.

Dionne says the duo’s personal relationship shines through when they play together. “I call her (Runnion-Bareford) my ‘harp soul mate,’” she said.

Dionne has served as adjunct faculty at Plymouth State University since 2001. She also teaches at the Manchester Community Music School and is the founder of The Alura Ensemble. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree in flute performance from the University of New Hampshire and has studied at the graduate level at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Mass. She is an active performer, teacher, conductor and adjudicator in the New England Region.

Piper Runnion-Bareford heard the harp for the first time when she was eight years old, and her musical education began soon thereafter. She holds a degree in harp performance from the Royal College of Music in London and the Curtis Institute of Music. She has been principal harpist with the New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra, and numerous orchestras in New England. She performs regularly throughout New England.

Free tickets for the recital are available at the Silver Center Box Office,(603) 535-ARTS (2787) or (800) 779-3869.
