DEUX VOIX
Stephen Distad, Organ
Justin Langham, trumpet

Founded and based in Houston, Texas, Deux Voix [Doo-Vwah] presents one of the most cherished and historical combinations of musical sounds, and is transforming it to appeal to a wide range of audiences.

Inspiration for the name Deux Voix (translated as "Two Voices") comes from our significant tie to France through our organist, Stephen Distad, who studied at the Conservatoire de Rueil Malmaison in Paris with Marie Claire Alain for a significant period of time. Marie Claire Alain, a giant in organ pedagogy and the most recorded organist in the world, tragically passed away in 2013. The name of our duo is one small way to pay tribute to this influential musical figure.

The goal for Deux Voix is not only to provide a cross-generational blend of music in a captivating concert setting, but to act as a source of musical outreach, creating excitement about our form of music around the community. Our repertoire encompasses a wide variety of styles and techniques, from works written in the time of Bach, to popular movie or broadway themes, to the spontaneous creation of music on the spot. This combined with effects such as multi-media, the result is a unique and totally immersive concert experience.

Deux Voix is not the typical trumpet and organ duo, and performances are not ordinary. Rather, they will be unforgettable musical experiences that will be inspirational, uplifting, and accessible to people of all ages. Make sure to follow us so you don't miss a concert near you!
