The Inouye Duo, comprised of sisters Sarah Inouye Mano and Seidi Inouye Bennett, found their love of ensemble work when earning Master's degrees with a focus in researching and performing two-piano works. They began performing again with a third sister (Mika) as Inouye Six Hands in 2021 as part of the Durango Chamber Music Festival, with the ongoing project to research, perform and teach the unique genre of six-hand repertoire to students and teachers. They have continued to perform concerts in Durango, Salt Lake City, and Santa Fe.
The Inouye sisters began their musical journey in Gunnison, Utah, which became home to their grandparents after they were incarcerated at the Heart Mountain Wyoming Internment Camp during World War II. While earning Bachelor's and Master's degrees in piano performance and pedagogy, they returned to Gunnison with their siblings and cousins during the summers of 2007-2013 to run the Inouye Institute Creative Arts Camp at Gunnison Valley Middle School. Beyond their performing, Mika, Sarah, and Seidi have worked with their professor sister Mei Li to develop in-person and online trainings in music, movement and social justice to public school teachers all over the country, including the American Orff Schulwerk National Conference. In their individual ways, they have pursued careers as performing artists and educators in their own communities.
