The tango duo is with my sister on violin and viola. We have recently performed Argentinian, French and Italian tango music, also virtuoso works of Spanish composer Manuel DeFalla. IN addition to the mp3 files, CDs of this performance are available upon request.
My jazz duo would include classic and contemporary jazz standards.
The Tango Duo is also prepared to perform as a classical trio.
As a soloist,my solo gigs have included church services,retirement homes, weddings, restaurants, libraries, and holiday parties in private homes. MY latest solo gigs(cocktail jazz) have been at Stripers and White Barn restaurants in Kennebunkport ME.
