Live! at the Museum: Dúo del Sol
Thursday, March 13, 2014
Free for museum members; free for non-members with museum admission ($5.00-$7.00)
Dúo del Sol is a latin guitar duo comprised of Tom Farell and Javier Orman. The duo’s first album, Mirá, a five-track EP, has critics praising their music as “seat of the pants playing, confident enough to take risks” with “compositions that live in the land of exceptional genius.”
Guitarist Tom Farrell strides effortlessly across the worlds of classical, contemporary, and music of the globe. As conductor of the Los Angeles Electric 8, Farrell launched the group on a successful East Coast tour in the spring of 2011; they were greeted with enthusiasm at the Strathmore Guitar Festival and received a Critics’ Pick in Time Out New York. Rising opportunities in Los Angeles have continued to shape Farrell into an extremely versatile guitar player and composer. Recently he recorded “Hermano” for the soundtrack of the Will Ferrell movie Casa de mi Padre.
Uruguayan violinist Javier Orman brings to Dúo del Sol a diverse array of influences, from J.S. Bach to Thom Yorke to Horace Silver. He has toured with Entropy Ensemble, a hybrid chamber/jazz group that routinely shuffles forward-driven rock’n'roll, jazzed-up reggae, and minimalism, all while re-interpreting Radiohead. He has also performed throughout Latin America with his Terranova Piano Trio. In 2009 he founded Kidzymphony, an orchestral program for young children in Charleston, South Carolina, that continues to nurture fifty children in music each year.
Live! at the Museum is an ongoing series of early-evening concerts in the museum’s galleries, a feast of sight and sound. In presenting the series, Laguna Art Museum has partnered with Laguna Beach Live!, an organization cherished by music lovers for its work in bringing performances by top-level, professional musicians to the Laguna Beach community. Not only are the galleries an appropriately beautiful setting in which to experience great music, they also boast fine acoustics. The concerts take place the second Thursday of each month from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
