About This Event
Pro Musica presents Cheng2 Duo in concert on Friday, March 15th, at Carthage R9 Auditorium, 714 S Main St in Carthage MO.
Captivating audiences and critics alike, the Cheng² Duo (pronounced Cheng Squared Duo) distinguishes itself with its uncompromising musical integrity, undeniable chemistry, and unparalleled communication with its listeners. The brother-and-sister duo is formed by 21-year-old cellist Bryan Cheng, top prize laureate of the VI International Paulo Cello Competition, and pianist Silvie Cheng, recipient of the Roy M. Rubinstein Award for exceptional promise in piano performance.
Quickly becoming an audience favorite wherever they perform, the duo’s refreshing approach to making classical music accessible to new audiences of all backgrounds is steeped in a rare balance of infectious joy and enthusiasm in their playing on one hand, and mature, historically informed, and profound interpretations on the other. With wide-ranging repertoire from Baroque to Contemporary, from original arrangements inspired by folk music to new commissioned works, the duo has presented engaging recitals in notable venues throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
The concert starts at 7:00 PM and is open to the public at no charge with donations appreciated.
