Piano By Nature Concert: Alturas Duo
April 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
One event on April 22, 2018 at 3:00 pm
Sending rhythmic vibrations straight to the heart of audience members with their ground breaking performances, Alturas Duo — the only group of its kind — has been recognized as one of the most entertaining and engaging ensembles performing in the chamber music world today.
Praised by The Washington Post as playing with “marvelous virtuosity,” Alturas Duo is recognized as one of the most engaging ensembles performing chamber music today. Bringing together the worlds of South American folk, western classical, and contemporary music, guitarist Scott Hill and violist and charango player Carlos Boltes have performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe as well as Central and South America to great acclaim.
Piano by Nature will be presenting Alturas Duo in performances on both Saturday, April 21 at 7PM and on Sunday, April 22 at 3PM. There will be a special appearance by the Adirondack Community Children’s Chorus (ADKCCC) led by Jennifer Moore on the Sunday concert ONLY. The Chorus will be working with Alturas Duo throughout the week before the concerts and will be singing their selections in Spanish. Both concerts will be held at the Historic Hand House in Elizabethtown, NY.
Tickets are a suggested donation of $15 per adult, and only $5 for anyone 15-and-under. We are glad to take reservations by phone or email and offer our tickets at the door on the day of the concert.
