(Sold Out) Christina and Michelle Naughton: An American in Paris

Saturday, August 25, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00pm, repeating until Monday, August 27, 2018

The Washington Post writes of twin sister piano duo Christina and Michelle Naughton, “They have to be heard to be believed.” And indeed, the pair performs with an almost inconceivably telepathic connection. For The Angel’s Share, the Naughtons will play a program bookended by Leonard Bernstein, in celebration of his 100th birthday year (and because his final resting place is but a stone’s throw from the Catacombs). In between, the sisters will alternate between American and French composers, including Ravel’s shimmering Ma mère l'Oye and Debussy’s En Blanc et Noir.
