The American violin and guitar ensemble Duo46 will perform at the University of Maine at Fort Kent’s Fox Auditorium on Friday, March 20 at 7 p.m. General admission to the event is $5. Tickets are available at the door. UMFK students will be admitted free of charge.
Duo46 are: Violinist Beth Ilana Schneider and Guitarist Matt Gould.
They have created their own repertoire that warrant standing ovations. Their intriguing mix of music depicts the impressions and experiences of modern-day classical composers, capturing an array of style and emotion, ranging from Classical to Flamenco, Gypsy to Turkish, Jazz to Rock, Folk to Bartok, and New Age to the most Avant-Garde.
With literally hundreds of original twentieth-century works for violin and guitar duo, double concertos, trios with piano, and collaborations with guest artists, including computers, the photogenic pair captivates audiences with their new repertoire and artistry.
