Posted: January 31, 2014

The UNLV Performing Arts Center presents Duo Siqueira Lima – Uruguayan Cecilia Siqueira and Brazilian Fernando Lima – at 8 p.m. on Saturday, February 15 in the Doc Rando Recital Hall as part of Allegro Guitar Series at UNLV. Outstanding classical guitarists in their own right, this stunning duo plays with “virtuosity, style, and elegance” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram).

Duo Siqueira Lima formed in 2003 after they tied for first place as soloists in the International Guitar Competition II PRO MUSICA/SESC in southern Brazil. Since they established their partnership, they have quickly become one of Brazil's most acclaimed guitar duos, winning critical praise from around the world. The pair has performed at numerous venues and festivals throughout Europe and South America. They are noted for their wide and eclectic repertoire, which includes compositions from the Baroque period to diverse contemporary Brazilian musical pieces.

Student rush tickets are $13 each (not inclusive of the facilities fee), and available one hour prior to each event, based on availability and with valid student I.D.
