Since meeting in 2010, Paula Bressman and Rachel Miller have taken the harp duo to new and uncharted territories. Never afraid to blur genre lines, Beyond Pluck is equally at home performing masterpieces by Bach, Debussy, and others, as they are rocking their own arrangements of classic pop hits. The two bring enormous musical passion, and a sense of adventure to every project, and have been privileged to share their music across the United States as well as Puerto Rico.
Beyond Pluck believes in the power of creative collaboration as a valuable tool to share the joy of music with a new and wider audience. The duo has worked with scientists, visual artists, filmmakers, symphony orchestras, museums, and schools.
In the science and visual art world, they have presented multimedia and multidisciplinary programs with astronomer and photographer / filmmaker Dr. José Francisco Salgado, of the nonprofit organization KV 265. They have also worked with neuroscientists through their participation in a Music and the Brain Project, a partnership between KV 265 and the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. Beyond Pluck enjoys speaking with and playing for young audiences through thoughtfully designed educational programs.
