Downtown Ruston hosts Stoll-Deutsch Duo for live performance

The Dixie Center For The Arts of Ruston, Louisiana is proud to present the Stoll-Deutsch Duo in a live performance at the historic Dixie Theater in downtown Ruston on Sunday, July 31 at 7 p.m. This internationally touring powerhouse duo will take the audience on a whirlwind journey through hits of the centuries from Bach to Billy Joel. Spiced with humor and a bit of history, their unique show is a blend of piano and violin. With a flair for the wild and unexpected, the genre-defying duo, brings the refinement of rigorous classical music background and infuses it with rock-star charisma. Known for their infectious and down-to-earth onstage personalities, this duo leaves their indelible mark on captivated crowds around the country by performing their arrangements of top pop hits, Americana, and classical favorites.

The Duo is Lindsay Deutsch (violin) and Jason Stoll (piano). No strangers to the stage as individuals, they have made an impact on the music scene as soloists, touring the world with Yanni, recording tracks for film and television, and as soloists in front of the Symphony Orchestra, they make it their mission to impart their love, passion, and joy in music-making to all who hear them, using their artistic ability as a conduit for storytelling.

Tom Faber, the communication director, said "That duo is like energy personified. I have been following them for a little bit. They're jammed packed full of energy."

More information and tickets are available at the Dixie Center.

The Stoll-Deutsch Duo is being hosted by the Dixie Center for the Arts in Ruston. The Dixie Center for the Arts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and restored historic theater in Ruston that also serves as a rental venue. The mission is "To be the home and heart of the arts in North Central Louisiana." The doors first opened in 1928, starting out as a silent theatre. Eventually, it ventured to the 'talkies' and became known as the Dixie Center.

In a few weeks, The Dixie Center will be hosting Sweet Cecilia.
