Phyllis Nefsky and LaVerne Christie
The Primrose Duo
The beautiful combination of flute and guitar can provide an elegant musical choice for your
party, reception, wedding or other special occasion. LaVerne Christie and Phyllis Nefsky formed the Primrose Duo to set just the right
mood, help your guests relax and reflect your feelings and personality through their very
expressive sounds. Both musicians have many years of professional experience playing in a
variety of settings and are versatile, not limiting their repertoire to strictly classical music.
Phyllis Nefsky specializes in the art of flute and guitar performances. With a classical
background, she has founded several duos performing in diverse venues including festivals,
weddings and special events throughout New York City and Los Angeles. In addition, she
has played in Broadway show ensembles and orchestral settings. Phyllis worked as a music
therapist for many years and understands the powerful effect of music. She presently works
as a sales manager for the world-famous Furnace Creek Resort in Death Valley National
Park, while maintaining an active musical career in the Death Valley area.
LaVerne Christie studied classical guitar with Jeffrey Van, has played in master classes with
world-recognized guitarists including Grammy winner Sharon Isbin, given recitals and played
solo guitar for countless occasions, including weddings at Caesar's Palace. She also leads her
own jazz trio which performs routinely in Las Vegas. The trio's cd East of the Sun, West of
the Moon, released in 2007, received widespread critical acclaim and heavy airplay in the
U.S. and Canada.
