Duo Unitas combines the talents of both woodwind player Thomas Lempner and guitarist Adam Sarata. They bring a flavorful arrangement of sambas, bossa novas, tangos, boleros, and Spanish music. As their name implies, Duo Unitas’ objective is to perform with unity of vision, character, musicianship, joy, and energy. The duo also performs classical repertoire for wedding ceremonies, and jazz standards for receptions and private parties.
Thomas Lempner serves on the music faculty at Baldwin Wallace University’s Conservatory of Music and at Cleveland State University; he previously held positions at Kent State University (Geauga campus), Western Reserve Academy, and Lorain County Community College. He also works full time as a Music Therapist for Positive Education Program at both a center for autism and a day treatment center for troubled youth.
Adam Sarata is currently Director of the Summit Music School. He has previously held positions as a faculty member at the University of Mount Union, Ashland University, the Community Music School of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and Muskingum University. Sarata has released three classical guitar recordings: Guitar at Akron, Cavata, and Sul Tasto. He has written articles published in Soundboard Magazine and Basically Bohlen.
