Merism Duo

Merism Duo was co-founded by saxophonists Michellina Chan and Mary Osborn. The duo was conceptualized in 2017 at the 5th Jean-Marie Londeix International Saxophone Competition in Thailand. Both of them finished their Bachelor's degree in Australia (Melbourne Conservatorium of Music – University of Melbourne and Sydney Conservatorium of Music – University of Sydney respectively) before moving to France to further their studies. What they have in common is their dedication to working with composers in their region to create new works for the saxophone. Michellina is currently pursuing her Master's degree at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Arno Bornkamp and Mary is studying at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Versailles with Vincent David.
