In the great tradition of the Boswell Sisters, New York City vocal sensations Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner & Melissa Stylianou joined forces as Duchess, quickly gaining a reputation for providing tight harmonies & big fun at their shows!
We had an amazing masterclass & concert at BLU with the ladies (and gentlemen!) of Duchess and hope to have them back again soon.
