Brigham Young University’s School of Music will host a special guest performance by the piano duo of Susan Duehlmeier and Bonnie Gritton Friday, Oct. 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.
Admission to the performance is free and the public is welcome to attend.
The performance, titled “The Wizard of Oz and Other Fantasies,” will include pieces such as “Fantasy on Porgy and Bess” by George Gershwin, and “It’s Lovely Here,” “Vocalise” and “Floods of Spring” by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
The Grammy Award-nominated duo began performing together in 1982. Since then, they have performed all over the world and have recorded a number of albums. Their most recent engagements have taken them to New York City for a performance at Carnegie Hall, Greece for a performance at the Hellenic Conservatory and Austria for a performance at Bösendorfer Hall.
Both Duehlmeier and Gritton hold doctoral degrees and are faculty members in the University of Utah’s College of Fine Arts.
