Noteworthy Duo

Lisa Schroeder and Michael Nigro join their musical talents, creating an experience of pure elegance and classical artistry.
Their vision is to reach a non-classical audience, inspire the classical listener, and to touch just one life with a "noteworthy" performance.
Their interest in South American Music can be heard throughout their extensive flute and guitar repertoire.
Lisa and Michael are both on faculty at Vanguard University of Southern California. Michael is is the head of the guitar department.

The program will feature works by prominent and less known South American composers.
The program is varied from folkloric dances and songs to sophisticated works full of colorful impressionism.

Flutist, Lisa Schroeder is a Los Angeles based performer, teacher, and clinician. Lisa is the founding member of Noteworthy Flute
and Guitar Duo and West Coast Winds, both of which are on the artist roster for the Orange County Performing Arts Center "Arts Teach" program.
She also holds the piccolo position with the Golden State Pops Orchestra.

The acclaimed guitarist, Michael Nigro, has released a new recording, "Guitar Sudamericana," which he will highlight during his performance.
His debut CD, "Homage to Piazzolla," is released on the label, Music and Arts.

The American Record Guide writes, "Its a pleasant collection of spiky Argentine rhythms interspersed with soulful milongas.
Nigro has a big sound, a smooth tone, and sure-footed interpretive instincts.

Nigro is an active member of the guitar community; he is co-founder of the Long Beach Classical Guitar Society, independent reviewer
of Soundboard Magazine, and sought after teacher and performer.
