We are very pleased to invite TwoSet Violin, two Australian young talents to share their musical journey and ambitions on the recent fundraising for their world concert tour. Two special performances will be given exclusively to KAS students at assembly time on September 6th, 11:15-12:00 (HS) and 13:00-13:40 (Grade 4-8).
TwoSet Live is a unique blend of traditional recital and TwoSet’s own signature comedy. Fueled by the mission to make classical music relevant and inspiring to the next generation, Brett and Eddy of TwoSet Violin bring quality performance mixed with down-to-earth, relatable humor.
TwoSet Violin first went viral with their funny and sometimes painfully accurate videos depicting life as a classical musician. In less than three years, the Australian classical comedy duo Brett Yang and Eddy Chen have gathered over 300,000 followers and 70 million views worldwide, inspiring young musicians with humor and a relatable ‘imperfectness.’ They have had collaborations with world-class soloists such as Lang Lang, Janine Jansen and Ray Chen.
In 2016, the duo gave up their spots in the Sydney and Queensland Symphony Orchestras and began hosting live performances, including a sold-out debut at the Sydney Opera House in December. Their one-of-a-kind show offers a unique and interactive experience, creatively integrating humor with actual recital—all while upholding the integrity of classical music. Unlike the typical classical concert, TwoSet Live attracts a diverse crowd, including young fans as well as people who have never in their lives been to a classical concert before. The duo are committed to spreading the love and inspiration for classical music.
TwoSet just wrapped up their Kickstarter campaign to be the first ever crowdfunded classical world tour. The two committed to nonstop busking and sleeping on the streets of Sydney until they hit their goal of $50,000 AUD—which they achieved in just 5 days. Their World Tour will bring the show to the international stage, including stops in London, New York, Berlin, Singapore, Warsaw, Vienna, Sweden, Norway, and Paris.
