The Merchant’s House is delighted to welcome Chloë Vincent and Sam Kinrade as “Flumpet Duo” to perform a Zoom concert for us on Wedesday 21st April. 

Wife and husband duo Chloë Vincent and Sam Kinrade are both professional musicians based in Oxfordshire and started performing together during the first lockdown in March when a composer friend offered to write them 14 days of ‘duets for self isolation’ for flute and trumpet. As they were stuck in their flat with nothing else musical to occupy them, they decided to learn and record one duet a day and share these with friends and family on social media. Much to their amazement this unusual duo worked brilliantly so they decided to explore other pieces of music for this format and look for more opportunities to perform and connect with audiences at this strange time. The Flumpet Duo are delighted to perform some of their favourites from Ryan Linham’s Duets for Self Isolation together with a variety of solo and duo music including works by Bach, Debussy and Piazzolla as well as more pieces by living British composers.

Chloë and Sam met whilst studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and are now both freelance musicians, regularly working with orchestras and ensembles throughout the U.K. Sam recently performed with the Aurora Orchestra at the 2020 BBC Proms and is a founding member of the award winning Quintabile Brass Ensemble who have performed as far afield as Canada and Japan. Chloë made her professional concerto debut in 2019 with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and has recently recorded for artists including Little Simz, Madonna and Michael Kiwanuka as well as film and TV scores. Although missing their normal performing life, the duo have enjoyed connecting with new audiences over Zoom and have particularly relished the flexibility of a more informal concert venue. It has been wonderful to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with a more intimate audience and have the freedom to answer questions and personalise performances for each audience. We can’t wait to perform for a new audience in association with The Merchant’s House and be inspired by this wonderful historic building!
