“Joining two hearts and four hands at two grand pianos, the Naughton sisters [create] an electrifying and moving musical performance.” — Sing Tao Daily

Twin sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton were born in New Jersey and grew up in Wisconsin, where their first piano lessons were given by their mother. Growing up, the sisters performed individually until the age of 18 when a concert presenter requested that they perform together. That marked the beginning of their preference to perform as a duo.

Christina and Michelle are both are graduates of The Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music, and their professional careers were launched in 2010. They are Steinway Artists, recently signing an exclusive recording contract with Warner Classics. They now live in New York City.
