Common Fence Music will present MoNo Guitar Duo in an online concert on Sunday, December 6 at 7p.m. The event is free, and all tips go to the artists. A link to the online concert will be provided at commonfencemusic.org prior to show time.
The MoNo Guitar Duo consists of Italian guitarist Giuseppe Molino and Polish guitarist Anna Krystyna Nowicka. The two met in 2010, at Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome. MoNo Guitar Duo was born in 2017, and the main goal of the two musicians is to deepen and expand the musical repertoire for two guitars with their own transcriptions.
The most recent accomplishments of MoNo Guitar Duo are a string of European Music Competition prizes including the 1st Prize in the chamber music category at the 18th International Music Competition in Caserta/Italy and the 2nd prize at the 1st Florence International Guitar Competition.
Involved in constant musical research, both Anna Nowicka and Giuseppe Molino are dedicated teachers who give master classes and seminars focusing on the most important aspects of the musician’s training and growth. MONO has also arranged for 4 hands guitar.
This concert is sponsored in part by a generous grant from the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts. Common Fence Music is a Rhode Island-based 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization whose mission it is to celebrate and preserve diverse folk music traditions by creating community-based opportunities for cultural exchange.
