Mirror 2 Mirror
A string duo, that believes in endless possibilities...
Formed in the Summer of 2019, Mirror 2 Mirror (M2M) is a violin-cello duo that values passionate performances, collaborations, and working with living composers. The duo features violinist, Dan Qiao, and cellist, Carolyn Regula.
Like two, facing mirrors that cast an endless reflection, M2M does not want to limit themselves to classical repertoire. In addition to these standards, M2M has a desire to give living composers a voice, already having given world premieres. Also, M2M believes in the value of collaborating with other musicians, using their versatility as a string duo to join other players and create an infinite amount of chamber group combinations.
Qiao & Regula met performing on a composition faculty member's recital at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. Since then, their mutual love for modern music sparked a connection that changed their performance lives. Their debut as M2M was at the Mostly Modern Music Festival's 2019 Chamber Music Showcase.
Since then, M2M has given a world premiere in New York City featuring original music by composer, Xaq Latino, and a collaboration with organist, Austin Philemon. Latino and M2M have an ongoing project, featuring music from the composition series, dollHauz.
