"They brought the house down and everyone wanted to
hear more!"

"It's like two Rhonda Larsons meet Greg Patillo."


Genre-shattering, pop-fusion flute duo, In Sterio, re-imagines, re-invents and re-defines the flute's place in popular instrumental music. Considered pioneers in their field, Shivhan and Erica, Miyazawa Artists, are fearless musicians, always pushing the limits in innovation. Classically trained, yet stylistically unique, their performances fuse virtuosic flute playing with original and eclectic cross-cultural music for an electrifying and powerful presentation of sound. Their vision challenges convention as they draw inspiration from rock, jazz, classical, latin, funk, folk, world and electro styles with a sound that has been described as "two flutes - one brain". Performances have been praised as "spell binding" and "awe inspiring". This high octane, "outside the box" duo brings audiences to their feet!

Individually, the girls have performed with artists such as Diana Krall, Al Jarreau, Harry Connick Jr., Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Newton John, Chris Botti, Burt Bacharach, Martin Sexton, Jake Shimabukuro, Elvis Costello and Diane Reeves. Performing around 30 concerts a year, In Sterio continues to make their mark as one of the "leading and most intriguing chamber ensembles" in the country. They have been invited to perform and clinic across the country, holding residencies at Universities such as James Madison University, Texas Tech University, University of Tennessee-Knoxville, University of South Florida and the University of Wisconsin-Madison to name a few. In Sterio has performed at the National Flute Association convention five times, and have been two-time Featured Artists for the Florida Music Educators Association Conventions in Tampa.

In Sterio released their debut album "Frequency" in 2010. Their recently-released sophomore album, "Awake", is a CD/DVD combo that unifies music and art in an original project inspired solely by the works of abstract artist, Jerry Peel. It is truly a feast for the ears and eyes.

In Sterio continues to grow in popularity developing a fan base both within and outside of the flute community. Their diversity contributes to their popularity among classical and mainstream musicians alike, allowing them to feel equally at home in any venue.

The following year, at the age of 22, Erica won the Associate Principal Flute/Piccolo position with the Honolulu Symphony.

In Sterio totally rocks. It feels like two flutes-one brain.David Kneupperwww.kneuppermusic.com
The fabulous flute duo In Sterio performed at UT today and to say that their ensemble and synchronicity was anything short of spellbinding and awe inspiring would be a hideous understatement!Shelley BinderAssociate Professor of Flute - University of Tennessee Knoxville
Goose bumps all over, my ears perked, my heart is singing. I LOVE THIS!Jeffery ZookDetroit Symphony Orchestra
A duo of entrepreneurial flutists, who both have great skills and wonderful imagination, In Sterio stands out in our country as one of the leading and most intriguing chamber ensembles.Jill Felberprofessor of flute, University of California, Santa Barbara
Wow, what a fresh, fun and impressive listen that is!!! Seamless production, great ideas, and damn fine flute playing! BRAVA!!!! I can't wait to hear it again tonight, and I gotta tell you, that does not often happen to me with flute CD's anymore!! I am a fan!Hal Ideflutist & composer
In their silver sequined tops and holey faded jeans, In Sterio took the audience on a journey through listening to the radio in their original work titled ‘Frequency'. With a backdrop of static, station tuning, and bits and pieces of tunes, the artists moved with stylistic verve from rock to pop, jazz to western. Playing flute, alto flute and piccolo, each "station" was carefully choreographed, and musical styles were brought to life. Using their toolbox of effects, they colored melodies with pitch bending, multi-phonics, pop tonguing, singing and playing along with timbral sounds. They brought the house down and everyone wanted to hear more!!Jan AngusRochester Flute Association newsletter
The rich textures, melodies and percussion that Shivhan and Erica weave into the songs is really fine work - I think I have listened to the CD almost non-stop since I got it and I keep hearing new things every time around. In Sterio has a very unique individualistic sound. There isn't another flute-based group quite like you. You really rock! This CD is a real gem!Ralph Marothyflutist & fan
I LOVE In Sterio Frequency! I play it constantly while working in my kitchen. You young ladies are so talented!...your choice of music is so eclectic...unique...unexpected...I was just ready to listen to yet another classical CD and was wholly delighted it was not! It is in deed a labor of love and it shows!Paula D.flutist & fan
In Sterio gave a perfect blend of an entertaining performance and an educational experience for all. It is a very difficult task to keep the attention span of young minds, but Shivhan and Erica did so perfectly…they are among the best in the music performance business.Leslie TwiteMusic Director, Adair-Casey School District, Iowa
Their unique style of engaging the students and teaching basic skills made a great impact on the students as well as the rest of the instrumental staff. They are without a doubt one of the finest groups we have ever had in the Roxbury Schools.Patricia BaggsRoxbury Township Public Schools
