Franz Schubert’s romantic masterpiece “Sonata Arpeggione” is featured. You won't want to miss this memorable event, so mark your calendar and get your tickets now! “Classical music suffers from an image of being elitist, stuffy, and boring when it’s really anything but!” said Debra Silvert. “We are so excited to be presenting our ‘Romantic Music’ for the Portage community. It’s a unique program that offers something special for every listener. And our music is sensory-friendly as well!”
Duo Sequenza has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Asia, and Europe. Lauded as "… brilliant, gossamer, and completely engaging…a delight to hear..." by Arts Indiana Magazine, Duo Sequenza is comprised of flutist Debra Silvert, “[who] uses a wide range of expression to serve the music.” (American Record Guide, Critic Todd Gorman) and Paul Bowman, “among the best guitarists in the world” (Rheinische Post, Düsseldorf, Germany). Their award-winning adjunct projects, composer collaborations, and residencies augment their deep impact on today’s classical music, as have the more than 20 new works written for them. “Yes…It’s a Thing!” their 2019 album of world premiere recordings was hailed as “…a sublime listening experience….” (Midwest Record Entertainment Reviews, News & Views) A sequel is slated for a 2022 release by Navona Records.
