2Squared with Andrew Ranaudo and Nicole Brancato
February 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Come hear four hands play DVAA’s grand piano for the first time! Pianists Andrew Ranaudo and Nicole Brancato (together, known as 2Squared) will perform in Krause Recital Hall at 2 pm on Saturday, February 24 as part of the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance Salon Series.
Andrew and Nicole will play pieces by Franz Schubert, Felix Mendelssohn, Alfredo Casella, and Erik Satie, with collaborations by Patte Loper and Sarah Nicole Phillips. The Satie piece accompanies the 1924 dadaist short film “Entr’acte” by René Clair, which features cameos by Francis Picabia, Erik Satie, Man Ray, and Marcel Duchamp.
Ranaudo, a Cochecton native, recalls that his first piano recital was at the Tusten Theatre. Now an award-winning performer, composer, and teacher, he has played venues including The Neue Galerie, Scandinavia House, The French Woods Festival for the Performing Arts, Webster Hall, Glasslands Gallery, Dixon Place, and Garfield Artworks.
Brancato, an acclaimed musician, has appeared at such venues as Lincoln Center, the Guggenheim, and the 92Y. She is a champion of creative and conceptual performance and has been featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, and Time Out New York.
DVAA is located at 37 Main Street, Narrowsburg, NY. Admission is free, and donations are appreciated. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. More information is available at delawarevalleyartsalliance.org.
