" DIÁLOGOS DUO gave a fantastic concert here, THE BRAZILIAN SONGBOOK. The joy they took in performing was palpable. It was also very informative and educational– speaking eloquently about the different Brazilian composers and musical styles. We had very positive feedback from the patrons, and I would highly recommend this ensemble."
