Event Description
With a fiery repertoire ranging from South American to classical to brand-new commissioned music, the Alturas Duo delivers high-energy concerts and is recognized as one of the most entertaining ensembles in the chamber music world today.

The Alturas Duo are Scott Hill (guitar) and Carlos Boltes (viola/charango). Derived from the poem "Alturas de Macchu Picchu" by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, the name "Alturas" is Spanish for heights. The only group of its kind, the duo regularly premieres new commissions, arrangements, and transcriptions, and has received the ASCAP-Chamber Music America Award for Adventurous Programming.
