The Hanno-LeMoine Duo formed in 2016, through a mutual interest of exploring the soundscape possibilities for the clarinet and saxophone instrumentation. The duo aims to broaden the repertoire for their instrumentation, making more conventional and unconventional sounds present to the single reed community of the world. Clarinetist Kristi Hanno has performed across the United States, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain and Iceland. Hanno is a teaching artist of Clarinet and Chamber Music in the Phoenix metropolitan area, and is highly sought after for both music and multidisciplinary collaborations. From this year's project, notable performances this summer included connecting with the Icelandic eco village community, Sólheimar, to share an unaccompanied recital, returning to Saarburg International Chamber Music Festival in Germany. She secured a place in the final round of the International Clarinet Association's young artist competition held in Orlando. Before moving to Arizona for her Master's in Clarinet Performance, Hanno studied with Professor Clarence Padilla at Drake University for her undergraduate degree. Currently, she is in the doctoral program for Clarinet Performance at Arizona State University. Ryan LeMoine is an active saxophonist and educator in the Phoenix metro area, as well as in many different venues across the United States and Europe. As a chamber musician, he was a prize winner at the Music Teachers National Association Chamber Music Competition (2015), as well as the inaugural NASA Saxophone Quartet competition (2008). As a researcher, LeMoine has completed an ultrasound study of saxophonist’s tongue motion during pitch bends. An Adjunct Faculty member at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and Estrella Mountain Community College, LeMoine also maintains a private lesson studio, as well as teaching saxophone at Rosie’s House Music Academy.
