After graduating from Yale University, Alonso and Drummond joined forces to create the powerful and energetic combination of this Cuban-Alaskan duo. Their performance at Syracuse University follows a series of successful concerts presenting programs of re-imagined interpretations of some of the most cherished repertoire of Spain and Cuba. By drawing on the long heritage of each instrument, the duo brings to life a rich and vibrant reading of the score while melding the best of piano and guitar literature.
The concert is presented by the Rose, Jules R. and Stanford S. Setnor School of Music in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. For more information or Setnor Auditorium concert status updates, contact the Setnor School at 315-443-2191.
