Based out of Phoenix, Arizona, Harbinger Duo was founded in 2018 with the intention of building new lifelong audiences through impactful musical experiences in the greater Phoenix area and beyond. As proponents of new music, Vince and Katrina are passionate about working with composers to create music that addresses sociopolitical change in both the community and world at large.
In 2019, Harbinger Duo premiered Where Once Was Safe by Kurt Mehlenbacher at the 2019 ClarinetFest in Knoxville, an international conference featuring some of the world’s best performers and clinicians in the community. Mehlenbacher’s duo was commissioned to align with the 2019 theme ‘Embracing the World’ and addressed immigration and inclusivity issues in the US and Mexico.
Vince Dominguez and Katrina Clements began collaboration while completing their Doctorate of Musical Arts degrees at Arizona State University where they both held competitive teaching assistantships.
