Weronika Balewski, flute, and Elizabeth Chladil, piano, are Boston-based musicians who value the conversations between performers, audiences, and students. Active as chamber musicians and instrumental teachers, they founded Marvento Duo in 2013 to collaborate as both performers and teaching artists. 

Weronika and Elizabeth were artists in residence at Avaloch Farm Music Institute and have collaborated with Multiverse Concert Series to present multidisciplinary concerts in collaboration with research scientists and visual artists, such as “Reef Music” and “Exoplanets.” They have performed at the Dalcroze Society of America National Conference and presented community concerts in Poznan, Poland, as well as throughout the Boston area. They developed an interactive concert exploring programmatic and abstract music, Is There a Gargoyle in Your Sonata?, which they presented at el Sistema Somerville and for a family concert in Brookline. Other performances have taken them to venues as varied as house concerts, formal recital halls, local schools, and senior living homes, including the Brookline Music School, the New School of Music, and the Waltham Council on Aging

Marvento Duo develops interactive educational workshops that encourage listeners to make personally relevant connections to live performances of chamber music.  They presented Copland’s Leaping Melodies and Deconstructing Climaxes at Rockport Music, Boston Flute Academy, and St. Paul’s Choir School. They have also performed for families and seniors at Powers Music School, Neville Place Assisted Living, and NewBridge on the Charles, and worked with graduate students in residences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Weronika Balewski is a flutist, Dalcroze educator, and arts leader. She is dedicated to creating engaging musical experiences that connect us to ourselves and to each other. She is the Flutist and Co-Founder of Marvento Duo and performs on both modern and Baroque flutes in various chamber, orchestra, and educational projects. She is Director of Development and Instructor at Integral Steps, an educational non-profit organization serving individuals, families, and communities through programs which integrate the mind, body, and emotions through interdisciplinary learning. Weronika has a thriving private studio in the Boston area and online.

Weronika collaborates regularly with Multiverse Concert Series on community events combining musical performances, scientific lectures, and activities for children and families. Recently, she co-founded the Virtual Dalcroze Meet-Up, an international community of music educators sharing strategies for online teaching and beyond. With Marvento Duo, Weronika was in residence at Avaloch Farm Music Institute and performed concerts in Poznań, Poland and at the Dalcroze Society of America 2020 National Conference.  

Weronika’s past chamber music collaborations include a fellowship at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival; the Coffee Cantata Project at Longy, featured in Susan Rockefeller’s film Bach Star Café; and writing, producing, and performing in Volare Ensemble’s humorous musical play The Meaning of Life: A Musical Debate at the Boston Early Music Fringe Festival. Weronika has performed as a guest artist with 208 Ensemble in Boise and Room to Spare in Roslindale, MA. She also co-founded Emissary Quartet and played with the ensemble for four seasons.

She has performed in the United States and internationally including recitals in Poland, France, and Japan. She regularly performs on the Multiverse Concert Series, which presents multidisciplinary events combining science lectures and music.  A founding member of the flute and piano duo Marvento, she was in residence at Avaloch Farm Music Institute and performed at the 2020 Dalcroze Society of America National Conference.

An enthusiastic teaching artist, Elizabeth invites audiences to form personal connections with live music through interactive workshops. She especially enjoys collaborating with schools to present workshops relating students’ academic studies to chamber and solo music. She directed and performed in an interdisciplinary “Whale Week” at St. Paul’s Choir School in which students learned about whales in their classes and heard a live performance of George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae. She has been a teaching artist with the Cantata Singers’ Classroom Cantatas program in which students in Boston Public Schools compose and sing cantatas based on a theme chosen by their classroom teachers. 

A dedicated teacher of private lessons as well as musicianship and theory classes, Elizabeth encourages musical artistry through balancing energy and spontaneity with patient attention to detail. In addition to her thriving private studio, she has served on the faculty of Powers Music School (Belmont, MA) and St. Paul’s Choir School (Cambridge, MA) since 2013.
