'Duo Orfeo' to perform Nov. 3 in Piedmont Chapel

By Staff
DEMOREST - Guitarists Jamie Balmer and Joseph Ricker as "Duo Orfeo" will be performing at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Piedmont College Chapel.

Admission at the door is $10 and $5 for seniors and students. Piedmont students, faculty and staff are admitted free.

Jamie Balmer is a graduate of Hampshire College and lives in Boston, where he teaches guitar and performs. Joseph Ricker graduated summa cum laude from the Hartt School at the University of Hartford and now lives in Hartford, where he is active as a teacher, solo performer and composer.

Duo Orfeo, named for the mythical Greek musician, Orpheus, draws its repertoire largely from hidden and under-explored byways of Western musical tradition both past and present.

Their work ranges from Renaissance lute and French Baroque harpsichord music to compositions by such modern masters as Arvo Pärt, Federico Mompou and Valentin Silvestrov-an ever-expanding body of music that includes many of their own arrangements of works written for other instruments, as well as works written for the ensemble of guitar duo.

They play this unique repertoire on classical guitars and on vintage electric guitars through tube amplifiers, creating a new sound that is all their own, playing with the finesse, clarity and focused touch of classical musicians.

Duo Orfeo brings to life a world of sound that is intimate, charming, subtle and haunting. To see more on Duo Orfeo visit their website at www.duoorfeo.com.
