The award-winning Belle Donne Piano Duo will perform, "Brazil: New Sounds for Four Hand Piano Literature," Saturday, March 29, at 7:30 p.m., in the University of Wyoming Fine Arts Center concert hall.

The concert will feature Portuguese pianist Alexandra Mascolo-David and UW music faculty member and Brazilian pianist Rubia Santos delivering not only the musical sounds of Brazil, but also an informal introduction to the compositions and Brazilian culture.

Santos has lectured and performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist in the Americas, Europe, and China. Her compact recording, "A Brazilian Collection," with trumpeter Luis Engelke, has been highly praised for its invigorating and innovative repertoire.
