Hannah LeGrand is an actively performing classical violinist, based in New York City. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance from the Greatbatch School of Music. There she has spent several years as the concert master of the Houghton Symphony and as the first violin in the Bravada String Quartet. Hannah has worked with a number of reputable teachers and performers including Martha Thomas, Charlie Castleman of Eastman and Frost School of Music, Laura Bossert of Syracuse University and Boston Conservatory, Sally Thomas of the Juilliard School, Ann Setzer of Mannes at the New School, and Stephanie Chase of NYU. She has also attended Summer Strings at NYU, Meadowmount School of Music, and the Castleman Quartet Program, during the summers, where she was coached by notable individuals such as Kikuei Ikeda from the Tokyo String Quartet and John Kochanowski (a protegé of Robert Mann, a member of the Juilliard String Quartet). Aside from her classical background, Hannah also has experience in jazz, pop, and contemporary music, and has also performed on vocals, electric bass, French horn, and guitar. She enjoys arranging solo pieces for violin and has, in the past, composed and performed in a pop style.
At 16 years old, Marc LeGrand made his recording debut as a sideman and contributing composer with the L.J.Y. Ensemble of San Francisco—featuring flutist virtuoso, composer, and GRAMMY nominee John Calloway and the late GRAMMY nominated trumpet player Jerry Gonzalez. By the time he graduated high school, Marc began to draw attention within the San Francisco Latin Jazz music community for his prodigious guitar and compositional abilities. After attending the American Conservatory Theater (studying the Alexander Technique and Character Analysis) and Stanford University's Jazz Studies program on full scholarship for three consecutive years, Marc relocated to New York to obtain his Bachelor’s of Music degree in Guitar Performance with a focus in Jazz Studies and Music Composition. In the years leading up to his relocation from California to New York, Marc gave performances at the KCSM Jazz Festival, San Francisco Carnaval Salsa Festival, Stanford Jazz Festival, Redwood City Summer Concert Series, Delta Jazz Festival, Santa Rosa Salsa & Latin Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Yoshi's SF, San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival, and Stanford Park's Artist Residency Series for which he collectively received awards and recognition for his work as a guitarist, composer, arranger, and educator.
Together, Hannah and Marc LeGrand make up their newest project: Intima Duo.
