The Richter Uzur Duo (RUDuo) plays a whimsical mashed-up blend of classical, world, and rock music.  In the U.S. the RUDuo is perhaps best known through its regular appearances on NPR’s Performance Today. Together Viktor and Brad have composed and arranged the most expansive collection of music for cello and guitar duo in existence, but in particular their Duo Concerto for Cello and Guitar, commissioned by the Jackson Symphony in Michigan and premiered in May 2012. The Richter Uzur Duo are outspoken advocates for the arts and arts education, Brad as the Executive Director of Lead Guitar, a not-for-profit that establishes guitar programs in public schools nation-wide and Viktor as professor at Weber State University and director of the Bonneville Chamber Music Festival. This event is free and open to the public.
