Naughton Piano Duo
November 16 Tuesday at 7:30 pm
EJ THOMAS HALL
Extraordinary twins –extraordinary sound.
A rare chance to experience two minds – performing as one.
They’re identical twins… paired to perfection. “I am ready to put them on a level with some of the greatest piano duos of our time” writes The Washington Post. The first such duo to receive Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Career Grants, the sisters have been a revelation for the classical music world. Now it’s your turn to be stunned by the intimacy of their connection. Enjoy works of Bernstein, Copland, Adams, and more.
Four hands on two (and sometimes only one) Steinway grand pianos — this is our Margaret Baxtresser Annual Piano Concert.
Watch the Naughton Piano Duo perform.
WHAT THEY WILL PERFORM

BERNSTEIN Candide for Four Hands

ABOUT NAUGHTON PIANO DUO
“Indeed, I’m ready to put them on a level with some of the greatest piano duos of our time...They have to be heard to be believed” said The Washington Post of Christina and Michelle Naughton. They have captivated audiences throughout the globe with the unity created by their mystical communication, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, in Christina’s own words, “There are times I forget we are two people playing together”. The Naughtons work as a duo was recently recognized in 2019 as they became the first piano duo to receive the Avery Fisher Career Grant presented by Lincoln Center.
