The internationally acclaimed piano duo of Christina and Michelle Naughton will give a concert March 6 at 8 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall of the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25 and are free for UGA students with valid UGA ID card.
The twin sisters began piano studies at age 4. During the 2008-2009 season, they made debuts at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theatre with the New Jersey Symphony and at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The Philadelphia Inquirer praised the duo as “paired to perfection.”
The Naughtons made their European debut in 2010 at Herkulesaal in Munich and their Asian debut later that year with the Hong Kong Philharmonic.
The Naughtons are graduates of the Curtis Institute of Music, where they were each awarded the Festorazzi Prize. They currently reside in New York City.
The Naughtons’ Athens program will include works by Mendelssohn, Schubert, Brahms, Bolcom, Mozart and Ravel. The recital will be recorded for broadcast on American Public Media’s Performance Today.
The Performing Arts Center is also sponsoring a Young People’s Concert with Christina and Michelle Naughton on March 5. Local elementary school students have been invited to attend an educational concert in Hodgson Concert Hall.
