Robert, who received training at the Cleveland
Institute of Music, uses a "modern" Italian violin made
in 1931 coupled with a very nice French bow and an
Ovation MCS148 acoustic/electric mandolin.  Kim,
who has received training at the University of
Michigan, uses a Wm.S. Haynes open-hole solid silver
flute, a Yamaha piccolo, and an olivewood Moeck
soprano wooden recorder.

Robert regularly performed with a multitude of
professional groups including the Atlanta Pops
Orchestra, the Atlanta Ballet pit orchestra and the
Savannah Symphony as a member of the American
Federation of Musicians in Atlanta, Georgia.  Kimberly
routinely performed in Ann Arbor with a number of
orchestras and chamber ensembles, including pit
orchestras for the Gilbert & Sullivan Society and other
musicals produced locally.  She could also be seen
frequently on national television as piccolo player for
the University of Michigan basketball band.  

Robert and Kim currently perform with the American
Kantorei on the campus of Concordia Seminary.  

Seasonal, classical, jazz and easy listening selections
are available.  
Balloon twisting and illusions are also
available upon request.
