Duo MajoreLocation: Based in Cape Town
Duo Majore is a delightful guitar-violin duo which was formed in 2001 when Sheryl Deane and Lucia Scott met in Cape Town. The combination of Sheryl's versatile guitar playing style, with the voice-like quality of Lucia's violin, has proved to be extremely popular amongst numerous wedding and event clients.
They have played for many embassies and corporate functions, including playing for Prince Edward and Prince Philip in 2002 and 2003. Individually, Sheryl has also played solo guitar for Nelson Mandela, an experience that remains a highlight for her.
Sheryl Deane graduated from the University of Natal in Durban where she studied guitar under Dave Hewitt, and Jazz composition under Darius Brubeck. She went on to study guitar with John Mills in London and played with the Lauderdale ensemble in Highgate, London for 5 years. Since returning to Cape Town, she has performed in concerts at Baxter, Lyndenburgh Arts, Artscape in Cape Town, and has done regular performances as soloist at the Table Bay Hotel.
Italian born Lucia Di Blasio Scott started her performing career at the age of eight in Sanremo, and has performed as soloist with the F.Sfilio Chamber Orchestra both in Italy and France. She came to South Africa in 1983 and was appointed as Vice-Principal in the newly formed NPO, and in 1993 relocated to Cape Town, where she was Principal in the CTSO and the CTPO.
Having moved on from orchestra work, she currently freelances and dedicates most of her time to chamber music. She is a principal guest with the Baroque series organized by Prof. Shirley Gie, as well as a member of the Palm Strings ensemble and the Michaelis Players, and she recently performed with Il Divo at Kirstenbosch. She also teaches violin at the University of Cape Town, and is in great demand for recordings used worldwide.
