The Incredible 'Glass Duo'... (3videos)

....No, the 'Glass Duo' are not Super Hero bartenders (although the picture above speaks otherwise). In reality, the Glass Duo are the combined talent of musicians Anna and Arkadiusz Szafraniec and their ability of creating beautiful music with their crystal glass harp. 
-see videos below 

I'm sure you remember the ol' parlor trick of rubbing the rim of glass to make it hum a tone... well the duo took this a hundred-steps forward after they quit the Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra in Gdansk to create the world's biggest glass harp that covers nearly 5 octaves. 

Their performances have generated a dedicated following and they have been fortunate to perform in various chamber ensembles and even symphony orchestras from around the globe.  The duo, traditionally trained with the violin and trumpet, have discovered a new passion that is anything but traditional and still capable of producing incredible and emotional music.
