Weronika Balewski, flute

Weronika and Elizabeth believe that engaging with music is essential, transformative, and joyful. Through Marvento Duo’s innovative performances and projects, they bring meaningful chamber music experiences to diverse audiences, connecting people with each other.
Their current program, "Twenty-somethings" explores music of different centuries written by composers in their 20s. Past programs have included "Mythos" and "Translations," performed both as traditional recitals and as interactive concerts with listening activities and audience discussions. Weronika and Elizabeth have presented workshops for graduate students at MIT, the Boston Flute Academy, Rockport Music, Sistema Somerville, and St. Paul’s Choir School. They perform at Groupmuse house concerts and were featured on the Family Concert Series, Faculty Concert Series, and Neighborhood Concert Series at Brookline Music School and Powers Music School.
Marvento Duo was founded in 2013 when Weronika and Elizabeth discovered a musical connection while helping each other prepare for master’s graduation recitals. They attended Lincoln Center’s Teaching Artist Development Labs together, which played an important role in shaping Marvento’s mission and activities. They both grew up in Indiana but met in Boston, where they are active as chamber musicians and teaching artists in various communities.
