Duo Mania has existed since 2000, when Ben Hausmann and Katherine Needleman met as students at the Juilliard School. Their goal is to offer interesting, thought-provoking, and entertaining programs of music, sprinkled with commentary and poetry. Think of them like TwoSet, but with more music, all combinations of oboes and pianos, and much, much nerdier.
