Duo Sequenza will be performing at the Memorial Opera House, 104 Indiana Avenue, on Wednesday, May 17 at 7:30 pm in celebration of National Chamber Music Month, a nationwide initiative to draw attention to small ensemble performance. Duo Sequenza’s performance is one of hundreds taking place across the country this May as part of this sixth annual series.
Comprised of Debra Silvert, hailed as a “gem of a flutist” and classical guitarist Paul Bowman, critically acclaimed as being “among the best guitarists in the world,” Duo Sequenza’s dynamic performances have received enthusiastic standing ovations from audiences throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Honored by the National Flute Association to perform at its 2016 Annual Convention in San Diego.
The May 17th concert will consist entirely of music by composers with strong ties to Indiana, an especially appropriate theme for this last concert of their Indiana Bicentennial Concert Season. Works by Jerry Owen, a native of Miller Beach, David Van Vactor, born in Plymouth, Valparaiso University alumnus Frank Ferko, Butler University alumnus Jonathan Chenette, and Indiana University at South Bend alumnus Ian Krouse will be performed.
In keeping with their tradition of bold and imaginative concert programming, Duo Sequenza issued a “Call for Scores!” in celebration of Indiana’s Bicentennial! The winning submissions, which will receive their World Premieres at the May 17 concert, are White River by Indianapolis composer, church music director and organist Francisco Carbonell and Duets Exhibition by Indiana University New Music Ensemble Assistant Director, Amin Sharifi.
