Washington County Concert Association

Concert Association presents Duo Baldo
The musical comedy team Duo Baldo will perform in the Washington County High School Theater on Tuesday, March 13 at 7:30 PM to close out the Washington County Concert Association’s 2017-18 season.   This critically acclaimed pair combine virtuosic performances, theatrical humor, and pop culture.
            Duo Baldo is renowned violinist Brad Repp and pianist/actor Aldo Gentileschi.  Since making their debut with Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli in 2004, Duo Baldo has entertained audiences all over the world.  Alberto Godas of Club Radio says, “The result was irresistible, with a solid hour and a half of enthusiastic, rousing and delightful performance. It was a triumph, with numerous encores capping an extremely exhilarating evening.”
            Italy’s Duo Baldo is in the early stages of a heavily booked U. S. tour, and we are excited to bring them to the Central Georgia area.  Much more information about Duo Baldo can be found on their website
All members of the Washington County Concert Association are encouraged to attend.  Non-members may attend the concert for $20, payable at the door.  Students can attend for free when accompanied by an adult.
