BRASIL GUITAR DUO
7:30 p.m. St. Mark's Episcopal Church. $10-$25.

Attention, fans of chamber music and classical guitar duos: here's one you'll want to be sure and catch. Joao Luiz and Douglas Lora, longtime friends and natives of Sao Paulo, have been performing together for many years.

The pair has toured the globe to widespread acclaim, playing a blend of classical pieces, traditional Brazilian songs and new compositions for guitar. Recently, the duo performed with symphony orchestras in Dallas and Houston, at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and at the University of Chicago, among other high-profile gigs.

The Brasil Guitar Duo will perform works by Piazzolla, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Villa Lobos, Debussy and Rameau.
