Derek Charke (flutes) and Eugene Cormier (guitar) formed the Charke~Cormier Duo several years ago culminating in a debut recital at the KC Irving Centre in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. This sonorous union of flute and guitar continues to charm audiences across the Maritimes. Their repertoire includes many of the most important works for this pairing of instruments, and creates a sonic journey for audiences from the street corners of Argentina to the halls of Europe, as well as introducing fresh new works created today. Both performers are highly accomplished musicians who are on the teaching faculty at Acadia University’s School of Music.

“Flutist Derek Charke and guitarist Eugene Cormier perform with intelligence and passion in their debut release. Both teach at Acadia University, and are well respected Maritime musical personalities. Here they play, produce, engineer and master terrific, clear, stylistically diverse music. This is a fabulous debut!”

Tiina Kiik, WholeNote Magazine, Aug. 2018

“Just in case you’re thinking an entire album of music for flute and guitar might be a bit much—think again! The pair has brought together a diverse program that takes you on a musical journey. They draw together compositions and arrangements from various eras and regions, keeping the sound fresh and engaging from beginning to end. Be sure to check out this first album from the Charke-Cormier Duo—it’s well worth a listen!”

Fr. Paul Rideout, The East Magazine, May 2018

“The Cormier~Charke Duo played in our Neil-Michaud hall last week and this was one of the most interesting concerts of this year’s series. The repertoire, the sound quality, the complicity of the artists were just awesome. This duo is dynamite, the music flows easily and vividly, the whole concert passed as in a few minutes, keeping the audience intent and watchful : the best feeling one wishes to have when attending a concert. Our Dept. of music can’t wait for their next show”
