Sérgio & Odair Assad, guitar duo

Venue: Kaufmann Concert Hall

Location: Lexington Avenue at 92nd St

Date: Sat, Apr 29, 2017, 8 pm

“A kind of wizardry lies within the playing of Sérgio and Odair Assad … they produce a supple, flawless unified sound.” — The New York Times

The Washington Post has called the Assad Brothers “the best two-guitar team in existence,” and 92Y has been proud to be the duo’s artistic home in New York City. Returning after their 50th anniversary concert two years ago, they close 92Y’s classical concert season in Kaufmann Hall with a program that demonstrates their versatility and virtuosity.
