  • Music

Instrumental and Classical

The Bel Canto Duo was founded in 2016 by Darci Griffith Gamerl (oboe/English horn) and Grammy-nominated cellist, David Downing.

The classical crossover duo provide a rich tapestry of sound, with a variety of selections from original works, classical favorites, film, broadway and opera.

Bel Canto facilitates community and connection by offering performances that are accessible to all. Their Summer Concert Series – now in its 4th season, provides free monthly concerts to all. The duo performs internationally in recital, for festivals & conferences, museum openings, art galleries & private events.

As award-winning performers & composers, Darci & David have collaboratively penned a number of commissions for film, documentaries & most recently, a commemorative commission by the National Willa Cather Center.

BCD’s album, Angel’s Share, a full-length tour de force, features the Four Cather Tableaux. The multi-movement work was inspired by select passages from the celebrated author. Other tracks include Sacred Waters, a 2022 commission featured in Nebraska Flatwater, directed by Adam Larsen.

Virtual performances & lectures on music, healing music (science based) are available.
