Middlesex Community College will close out the Spring 2024 “A World of Music” concert series with a performance by MCC faculty member Raley Beggs and Carl Straussner. The concert will take place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 2 at the MCC Concert Hall on the Bedford Campus.

“Carl and I are thrilled to deliver this program of acoustic sunshine to the MCC community,” Beggs said. “Working in tandem and true to our roots, ‘Duo du Sud’ zooms in on an eclectic mix of world music through the sonically intimate, binocular lenses of two guitars.”

The guitarists will present a concert featuring western classical music and works by South African composers inspired by traditional African music. Duo du Sud seeks to revitalize and expand the guitar repertoire, performing concerts that are equal parts virtuosic and vibrant. Works by Robert Johnson, Johannes Kapsberger, Ali Farka Touré, and David Hewitt will be performed.
