In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Houston Symphony will offer its annual free concert, Chevron Fiesta Sinf‹nica Familiar, on September 9 with the Brasil Guitar Duo, a winner of the 2006 Concert Artist Guild International Competition.

Duo members Douglas Lora and Joê£o Luiz met in Sê£o Paulo and have been performing together for over a decade. Their repertoire covers classical music and such Brazilian styles as samba, maxixe, choro and baiê£o.

Lora recently finished his masters degree at the University of Miami as a student of Dr. Rene Gonzalez, and Luiz is a member of the guitar quartet Quaternaglia.

The HSO's former associate conductor, Carlos Miguel Prieto, leads the orchestra in Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Concerto for Two Guitars (1962) and other works by Falla, Prado and Turina. Tickets, limited to ten per person, will be available at the Jones Hall box office on the night of the concert. Visit www.houstonsymphony.org for more information.
