Formed by Bradford Werner and Michael Dias in 2007, this duo brings energy and elegance to the concert stage. The duo has performed duo concertos by Hetu and Vivaldi (they were featured soloists with the Sidney Classical Orchestra in 2012) as well as more intimate chamber works.
The name Quelus stems from a tradition we have of renting a cabin on a different gulf island every Thanksgiving. The first cabin that we stayed at with friends was named Quelus.
From formal concert halls to weddings, corporate events, and private functions, the Quelus Duo have compiled many collections of music that suit any event and are personal favorites of the performers. As well as being active members in the Quelus Guitar Duo, Michael and Bradford are also dedicated members of the Victoria Guitar Trio, a performance group just for the concert hall. Both players are also active faculty members at the Victoria Conservatory of Music where they teach private lessons, orchestras and ensembles, masterclasses, and more.
