FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 31, 2010) — The final performance in Shell Point Retirement Community’s 2009-2010 Fine and Performing Arts Concert Series will be the Contiguglia Brothers. This concert will take place on Thursday, April 8, at 7:30pm in the Shell Point Church auditorium announced Dawn Boren, director of resident life for Shell Point Retirement Community.
“The 2009-2010 Fine and Performing Arts Concert Series has been a great success,” said Boren. “Residents and visitors from all over Southwest Florida have enjoyed the variety of performances that were offered, and many are already asking what concerts will be in line for the 2010-2011 Series.”American identical twins, Richard and John Contiguglia, are among the most acclaimed and versatile piano-duos in the world today. Since their London debut in 1962, following which the London Daily Telegraph described their playing as setting “a new standard for this intimate form of music-making,” Richard and John are now the proprietors of their own recording company, Gemini CD Classics. Their releases on the Gemini label, Schubert Piano Duets – The Final Year, Live from the Holland Liszt Festival – Duos of Franz Liszt for One and Two Pianos, Music of Gershwin-Grainger and, most recently, Beethoven/Liszt 9th Symphony, reflect their lifelong commitment to popularizing the great body of music for two pianists.
Tickets for this concert are $35 each, and to purchase tickets or receive additional information about the concert, please call (239) 454-2067.
