Siroko Duo:

Siroko Duo (sah-rock-o), a flute ensemble comprised of San Francisco flutists Victoria Hauk and Jessie Nucho, is dedicated to commissioning and performing new works, creatively interacting with performance space to enhance the audience experience, and bringing contemporary music to new and younger audiences and performers.

Sharing a passion for commissioning and performing new works, Victoria and Jessie formed Siroko Duo in 2015 to record duets by Kyle Randall and Lucas Floyd, and they continue to perform works by mostly living composers. Actively engaged in the contemporary music scene in San Francisco, Siroko has commissioned pieces by Julie Barwick, Joseph M. Colombo, Chelsea Loew, Emma Logan, and Kyle Randall. Highlights of Spring 2017 included performances at the Hot Air Music Festival and Re:Ignite, a collaboration with Helia Music Collective, a San Francisco Bay Area organization that supports the creative endeavors of women in music. In August 2017, Siroko traveled to New Hampshire to participate in the Avaloch Farm Music Institute accompanied by composer Nick Benavides. Both Jessie and Victoria studied with Tim Day at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
