Quatra Duo, comprised of guitarist Jeff LaQuatra and flutist Michelle Stanley, have been performing together since 1998. Through their performances, they have enjoyed presenting much of the great repertoire for this ensemble, but their most recent commitment lies in commissioning new works for flute and guitar. Commissions include Painted Music by Bryan Johanson, James McGuire’s Suite for Flute and Guitar, and a piece in 2020 by Grant Ferris.

Quatra Duo has performed throughout the United States and, in 2019, completed a six-concert tour throughout China. The duo has been invited to perform and teach at the Interharmony Music Festival in Italy and the Prague Multicultural Music Festival. Their recordings can be found on Centaur and Navona Records. LaQuatra and Stanley are professors of their respective instruments at Colorado State University in Fort Collins CO.
