"Extraordinary. A magical atmosphere from the first note!"

Animo is a Contemporary Classical flute and piano duo that perform soulful timeless music

Animo = spirit, mind, emotion, intent, feelings

Sarah and Yanna launched Animo in Gloucester Blackfriars in October 2019. Since October 2019, we have committed to a five-year 'new music project' commissioning composers worldwide to write music specifically for us. 

Animo are all about performing soulful music with a myriad influences which means that since June 2020 Animo is officially 'Declassified'. Our performance style is inclusive, open, fun and laid back. We thrive in creating a connection with our audiences.

During the current pandemic, Animo went to work, started new projects and more recently LIVESTREAMING 5-10 minute concerts on YouTube (October 2020). 

ANIMO can tailor music to suit all audiences and ages. For samples of programmes and our repertoire, please have a look at Performance

"'A' and I were blown away by the versatility of Animo. The pieces were very atmospheric and made even more so by the surroundings. I'm not a great fan of contemporary music but I loved the pieces you played which weren't, as I would say, too off the wall! You make a great duo and look forward to hearing more from you both."


"Amazing performance! The music was beautiful!"
