Folias Flute and Guitar Duo
6:00 PM, Monday, September 15: Folias Flute and Guitar Duo

American Record Guide calls the Folias Flute and Guitar Duo “daring in self written music.” Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan this unique performer/composer duo was founded in 2003 by husband and wife Carmen Maret and Andrew Bergeron. In performance, Folias combines their classical music training, their experience as tango dancers and bandleaders, their love of Astor Piazzolla and their knowledge of the jazz idiom. They have performed in concert halls, clubs and for tango events across the United States, in Europe and in Argentina. Folias’ four critically acclaimed albums on the Blue Griffin Recording label feature their work together as collaborative composers and arrangers.

Andrew Bergeron is instructor of guitar, ear training, and music theory at Grand Rapids Community College, Grand Valley State University and Aquinas College. Andrew is a founding performer and composer with the Grand Rapids Guitar Quartet which feature his new works and arrangements. Andrew received his Bachelor of Arts in Music and Philosophy from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI with a focus on guitar performance, music composition and Chinese philosophy. He received his Master of Music in composition at Michigan State University School of Music where he was recipient of the “Paul Harder Composition Scholarship.” Andrew Bergeron’s main guitar teacher was Brian Morris at Grand Valley State University. He also studied with Nicholas Goluses and Scott Tennant while at the Eastman Guitar Festival. Andrew’s main composition teachers were Charles Ruggiero and Bob Schechtman and he studied theory with Sherman Van Solkema.

Carmen Maret is an endorsed Pearl Flute artist and instructor of flute at Aquinas College. Carmen received her Bachelor of Music in flute performance from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and her Master of Music in flute performance from Michigan State University School of Music. She also received a second Master of Music degree in ethnomusicology at Michigan State University with a focus on Argentine tango music and dance. Carmen Maret is the founder of the Grand Rapids Tango Community. Carmen Maret’s primary teachers were Mary Posses and Richard Sherman. She attended the Eastern Music Festival in 1999 and also studied with Peter Lloyd at his summer flute seminar in St. Andrew’s, Scotland in 2000. Carmen has performed in masterclasses with William Bennett and Julia Bogorad and attended masterclasses with Carol Wincenc, James Galway, and Emmanuel Pahud. Carmen’s jazz teachers include Bobby Watson and Ron Blake. She also studied tango music with bassist Pablo Aslan.
