Omaha – On Friday, April 4, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will welcome internationally known Indian musicians the Lalgudi Duo to the Strauss Performing Arts Center for a special performance that is not to be missed.
The Lalgudi Duo is made up of sibling violinists Lalgudi G.J.R. Krishan and Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi, natives of South India who debuted at the age of 13 and have been performing together ever since.
The pair’s unique musical style emphasizes the lyrical beauty of song by combining their individual performance and stylistic strengths to create a harmonious symphony.
With so many regional and national acts coming to Omaha, the UNO Music Department is hopeful that this pair of international performers will expose the campus and Omaha communities to new experiences.
“Music is universal, and presenting diverse multicultural styles promotes intercultural competence and understanding among our students and in our community,” said Tomm Roland, acting chair of UNO’s Department of Music.
The Lalgudi Duo has performed internationally in many prestigious venues, including the Sydney Music Festival, Lincoln Center and Smithsonian Institution.
Tickets for the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m., will be available at the door. Tickets are free for UNO students with MavCard, $20 for the general public and $10 for other students.
For questions about the event, contact Charley Reed, UNO media relations coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 402.554.2129.
