Hello , i am going to do a concert of harp and flute,
One fairly straightforward name for the concert would be”
“(your name), harpist
(flutist’s name), flute
In a concert featuring the works of (composer A, composer B, and composer C).”
or something direct like that. I sometimes prefer something direct over concert titles that are too clever.
But perhaps if there is some general theme to your music selections, maybe the time period, composers, subject or style, that could help give ideas for a name. “Baroque music for harp,” “French classics for harp and flute,” “An evening of minimalist pieces for harp and flute” etc.
I guess I’ll never win a contest for most interesting event title, but at least people will know what to expect when they attend. What are some of the pieces you plan to play?
How about for some inspiration, look at your CD or record album collection and observe the type of music being presented in the album, the musicians involved and whether there is a theme running through the album that connects the selections – and then what the album has been named – I would also take into account where you are giving this concert and who is your expected audience – do you need to keep it “classy” or can you have a little fun with the title –“An Evening of Classics for Harp and Flute”“Music for a Spring Evening”
Basil Sara – harp
with James Galway – flute“I Didn’t Know You Could Play That on a Harp”

Best to you
