Kathryn Andrews, UD alumna, and Kristi Shade form Duo Scorpio, a New York City-based harp duo on a mission to expand the duo harp repertoire by commissioning new works and exploring existing repertoire. In 2010, the duo began searching for music for their newly formed ensemble and realized this particular part of the harp repertoire had yet to be fully explored in a contemporary setting.

Duo Scorpio was awarded the American Harp Society Grant, which they used to commission composer Robert Paterson. His work, Scorpion Tales, was premiered by Duo Scorpio at the AHS National Conference in New York City on July 2, 2012. 

Duo Scorpio recorded their first album, Scorpion Tales, in the spring of 2012. It was released on the American Modern Recordings Label on September 4, 2012 and was on the ballot nomination for the 2013 Grammy® awards. Duo Scorpio has performed with Florence + The Machine at the Met Gala, for Metro Harp New York and has performed together orchestrally in Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall.
