Gillian Blair and Elinor Nicholson formed the Polaris Duo in 2011 whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music. Since then, they have performed at UK venues including the Bridgewater Hall, Buxton Opera House, Warwick University and Leeds International Concert Season. The duo has been exploring an eclectic range of repertoire and possibilities for this unusual instrumentation.
“What a joy it was to hear this unusual pairing of instruments…the sax was beautifully controlled and the harp rich in sound, resulting in a beautiful colour to the music. With their musicality and engaging stage presence they are already well accomplished. They are destined to be rising stars of the future.”
