Duo Performs ‘Beyond Bossa Nova’ Sept. 15

by Haley Arni

A pair of musicians will present a musical performance at Emory & Henry College on Sept. 15 that narrates the tale of romantic classical music in Brazil.

Guilherme Andreas, flutist, and Gianne Ge Zhu, pianist, present “Beyond Bossa Nova” beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Kennedy-Reedy Theatre of the McGlothlin Center for the Arts.

Andreas is an active performer and educator throughout the United States. He is based in New York, dedicating his time to discovering lesser-known composers whose music expresses extreme ranges of emotions and demands tremendous virtuosity. In addition, he teaches flute, chamber and general music, band and choir to students of all ages.

As an active pianist, Zhu has performed solo and chamber music. She has engaged in intensive accompaniment in the U.S., China, Germany, Italy, Spain and Malta. She is a prize-winner at numerous competitions, including the Sixth Catholic University of America International Piano Competition, West Virginia International Piano Competition, JMU Concerto/Aria Competition, VMTA Piano Concerto Competition, and VMTA Young Artist Piano Competition.
