Resume

My name is Maïwenn and I come from France. I was born in Paris where I grew up. I started to learn the music at the age of 7 years old. I obtained a gold medal for harp and a degree in music studies at the Conservatory.

 

In 2005 I received my first prize for harp and I became the first harpist in the Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestra of the Paris Conservatory. I regularly give many concerts with my different bands. I've been teaching harp at different levels for many years. I've been working with a lot event planning agencies specialized in weddings in France for an international clientele.

 

In 2006, I met Willy Ekoué who became my husband and with whom I form a classical duo. I am very pleased to propose my duet 'Sonates en Duo', an unusual alliance between a soprano saxophone and a harp. We recorded our first album under the name of Sonates en Duo. We toured France for 2 years, giving a series of concerts, mostly in chapels and cathedrals.

I am Willy. I was born in Paris. I play the soprano and tenor saxophone, the alto flute and the bass.

 

I obtained a first soloist price for saxophone and a first prize of arrangement.

 

I am the saxophonist in differents groups with whom I've played in France, Europe and all over the world (Colombia, Spain, Guinea, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Portugal...)

I am very proud to play in duo with my wife for many years.

 

In 2008, we signed a contract with the prestigious brand Swarovski Crystals, in France, giving concerts for the launch of their new collection to their exclusive clients. It was an amazing experience.

 

I've been teaching saxophone for several years.
