Mike Reardon and Connor Barney began their guitar duo when they met at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music summer music festival under Clare Callahan. They both were accepted to the Indiana Jacobs School of Music under Ernesto Bitetti, where they’ve been studying, teaching, and performing for the last 6 years. After numerous coachings from a diverse range of faculty members, dozens of concerts, and countless hours of cultivation, Mike and Connor formed themselves as the “Indiana Guitar Duo”. In less than a year, both members will hold a Doctorate of Music from Indiana University. Their unique background and shared musical journey together create an electric atmosphere on stage which captivates all audiences!
