Cecy Duarte and Julia Fox, both exceedingly vivid and vital panels in the musical quilt of Houston, team up to demonstrate authentic sides of themselves that we don't often hear.

Musicians of any description are regularly button-holed into certain corners of the rep; this insufficiently reflects their depth and breadth and a recital like this aims to point a way to CORRECT that situation.

They will offer six duets from across the ages - Monteverdi to Sondheim to Bellini - and in between...?

...YES, you guessed it...

Julia, an American soprano, will sing all things Hispanic; Cecy, the Mexico-born mezzo, will sing all things European and American!

We are ALL, root and branch, brothers and sisters - and we all have within us a remarkably wide range of resonance and expressive potential. We at GSI want to be explicit about this; hence, programs of this sort.

"CROSS-cultural" is a production of Grace Song, Inc., a Texas 501 (c) 3, not-for-profit corporation; Keith Weber, Artistic Director.

Plan to join us NOW! SAVE THE DATE! ...and stay for a festive reception afterwards...

As always, GSI Events feature free admission, are in town and offer easy to find and plentiful FREE parking.
