Doppio Ensemble: violinist Evandra de Brito
Gonçalves and pianist Ana Queirós

The Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese American Archives at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth announces a free concert by Doppio Ensemble. The event will take place at 6:00 PM in Room 153 of the Center for Visual and Performing Arts on November 18, 2014.

Established in 2002 with violinist Evandra de Brito Gonçalves and pianist Ana Queirós, Doppio Ensemble has performed in several festivals and concert halls throughout Portugal, England, Italy, France and Brazil.  With a wide repertoire that ranges from the Baroque period to XXI century compositions, the duo dedicates special attention to Portuguese composers.  Combining tradition and innovation is a distinguishing characteristic of the Doppio Ensemble, which has also influenced the choice and design of the duo’s logo--“Viana´s heart”—symbolizing the double essence and identity of the musicians and the project. In its constant search for new challenges and eclectic sonorities, the duo frequently enjoys playing jazz, bossa nova and world music. In this concert, they will perform works by Fernando Lopes-Graça, Anne Victorino d’Almeida and Sérgio Azevedo, among others.
