The Ohio University School of Music will present the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo this Sunday, March 24 at 3 p.m. in Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.

Known for their adrenalized performances, original compositions and notorious music videos, Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe have been described as "Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers transposed from the dance floor to the keyboard" (Southampton Press) and "the intense synchronization of genius" (ThirdCoast Digest).

The duo have appeared on NPR and MTV, toured worldwide and performed in nearly every New York City venue imaginable, from Carnegie Hall to children’s hospitals.

Graduates of The Juilliard School, they are featured on the Sounds of Juilliard CD celebrating the school’s centenary. Their most recent album, When Words Fade, spent nearly a dozen weeks at the top of the Billboard Classical Charts upon its release in 2011, while their self-produced music videos have been viewed by millions on YouTube.

Anderson and Roe's performance at Ohio University will feature Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos in D major, K.448; their rendition of Stravinsky’s "Adoration of the Earth" from The Rite of Spring; and original arrangements of songs by Michael Jackson and Radiohead.

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.finearts.ohio.edu.
