DEUX VOIX (Stephen Distad, Organ & Justin Langham, trumpet) in concert on
Friday, January 26, 2018 at 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Tickets are $15 on-sale now by calling the church office at 941-953-7044
The inspiration for the name Deux Voix (translated as “Two Voices”) comes from renown organist and teacher Marie Claire-Alain’s collaboration with legendary trumpet soloist Maurice Andre. Our organist, Stephen Distad, studied with Claire-Alain at the Conservatoire de Rueil Malmaison in Paris. The name and mission of Deux Voix is a small way to pay tribute to this truly legendary musical duo.
