The Lumina Duo is comprised of oboist Merideth Hite Estevez and pianist Jani Parsons. Hite Estevez serves as director of Lumina Arts Incubator, an arts service organization in Wilmington, Delaware. Parsons is an active soloist and collaborator and a member of the keyboard faculty at Baylor University. They’ve gathered together a program of favorite music from French composers of the Impressionist era. The artists say, “We were looking for works that stretched us, that soared beyond the traditional repertoire, and that expanded the pairing into new and wild territories. From this place, ‘Beau Soir’ was born.”
