Specialising in classical duets, Due Voci’s repertoire is drawn from a range of composers from the 16th to the 20th century.
They are currently developing their repertoire of music from the Romantic period, including Faure, Chausson, Schumann and Schubert as well as less well known works by Dvorak and Tchaikovsky and are excited about presenting a whole programme of this repertoire at their forthcoming concert on Saturday, April 28, at the Fielden Centre, Todmorden (7.30pm).
Due Voci are sopranos Mandy Doyle and Vivien Burr, and piano accompanist Ailie Kerrane, and they are now entering their tenth year as Due Voci.
They are all members of local chamber choir The Hepton Singers and have all lived in the Calder Valley and worked in West Yorkshire for over 25 years.
Viv Burr studies singing under Patricia Hamilton. She is a reader in psychology at the University of Huddersfield. Mandy Doyle studies singing under Bridget Budge. She is a primary school teacher specialising in work with deaf children. Ailie Kerrane spent a year studying piano to diploma level before going to university. Although she decided against a musical career, she has continued to enjoy amateur music making.
The trio combine their experience of making music together with a desire to give pleasure and enjoyment to their audience, communicating their own genuine love of music.
They choose their repertoire to appeal to and connect with a wide audience - music which captures the emotions and goes straight to the heart.
Tickets are £8 (concessions £6, students and children £1).
