Harrington Loewen Duo

Canadian musicians Allen Harrington, saxophone and Laura Loewen, piano, established the Harrington/Loewen Duo in 2002. Praised for their musicality, tight ensemble, and virtuosic performances, the Harrington/Loewen Duo has performed throughout North America, and in Europe, Asia, and South America. Recipients of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Manitoba Arts Council, they are committed to exploring the standard repertoire and actively commissioning new works. Allen is in high demand as a soloist, adjudicator, chamber and orchestra musician on both saxophone and bassoon. One of Canada’s most expressive collaborative pianists, Laura performs with leading singers and instrumentalists across the country. Allen and Laura are professors at the University of Manitoba’s Desautels Faculty of Music in Winnipeg, Canada.
