 Duo Sequenza will perform its all-new concert, “We’ve Got Rhythm!” at the Memorial Opera House, 104 Indiana Avenue, Valparaiso on Wednesday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m. in celebration of National Chamber Music Month, a nationwide initiative to draw attention to small ensemble performance.

This will be the duo’s fifth annual national chamber music concert, featuring a cornucopia of music written for flute and classical guitar by American composers. A meet-and-greet at the cash bar begins at 7:00 p.m.

The May 8 concert features works by Schocker, Maggio, Hand, Holliday, Caliendo, Daugherty, and Chamberlain.

The internationally acclaimed Duo Sequenza enjoys enthusiastic ovations from audiences and praise from composers and critics. Debra Silvert, hailed as “a gem of a flutist,” and Paul Bowman, “among the best guitarists in the world,” have premiered American new music throughout the U.S., Asia, and Europe.  Active in commissioning new works, and on the artist roster of PARMA Recordings, their album of world premiere recordings released on the Navona Records label this month and has received advance acclaim. As a concert artist chamber ensemble, their mission is the strategic development of new audiences for today’s classical music by promoting the work of living composers.

Duo Sequenza’s performance is one of hundreds taking place across the country this May as part of this eighth annual series. Last year, participants in all 50 states took part in events showcasing ensemble music of all styles, including classical, jazz, world, and early music, as well as contemporary and experimental works informed by emerging technologies and innovative performance techniques.
