Sarah Girges has been playing piano for 10 years and Avah Girges has been playing for 6 years. They began playing piano duet less than 2 years ago when their teacher, Barbara Miller, suggested they explore duet music together. It was a natural fit for them and they love working together! They enjoy the challenges that come with playing with a partner and as a team, attempting to sound unified as well as balanced, which can be difficult to achieve. As a duet team , they have won 1st place at the Chicago International Competition in the ensemble category, as well as winning 2nd place at MTNA nationals. They also compete individually and have won or placed in numerous competitions as solo pianists. They both look forward to a career in music.
