The flutist duo of Steve Markoff and Patricia Lazzara met years ago when Steve came to Patricia for lessons. Over the next five years, that teacher-student relationship would slowly morph into one of fellow artists and colleagues, culminating in Steve’s appearance on Patricia’s 9th studio album, Radiance. Now, just a little more than a year later, this Northern New Jersey-based tandem sees Steve Markoff (alto flute), Patricia Lazzara (concert flute), collaborating with Allison Brewster Franzetti (piano), to create their latest album, the critically acclaimed "Timeless—Hits of Love and Hope From Pop, Rock & Soft Rock", an 18-track monster of an album which is loaded with gentle acoustic covers of iconic hits we all know and love. Patricia Lazzara (concert flute) has distinguished herself as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician. A 3-time winner of the Artists International Competition, she has performed at Carnegie Hall several times and at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.
