Chelsea First United Methodist Church presents Detour de Force, a vocal duo on Saturday, Sept. 20, at 7:30 p.m.
Everyone is invited to this free concert at the church at 128 Park St.
Laura Hynes and Audrey Luna have warbled and chirped opera, oratorio, new music, jazz, cabaret, and art song on five continents, in and around the most famous concert halls and opera houses, plus a few bars and street corners to boot.
They have “musicified” with conductors and artists like Jesús López-Cobos, Anthony Pappano, WilliamChristie, Helmut Rilling, Stephen Cleobury, Niklaus Harnoncourt, John Corigliano, Chen Yi, TheHagen Quartet, James Tocco, Walter Levin, Frederica von Stade, Dawn Upshaw, Barry Manilow, Kenny Loggins, Bozo the Clown, and oodles of other very famous people.
The duo team up to perform music that is both familiar and foreign, humorous and humble, with profundity and panache. Detour de Force invites you to share the beauty and power of song in a soulfully entertaining atmosphere.
