Underground Classical Presents Alex DePue & Miguel DeHoyos May 4, 2018• 8:00 P.M.
Individually, Alex DePue and Miguel DeHoyos have wowed the world—from DePue performing at Carnegie Hall at the age of 14 and touring with rock guitarist Steve Vai in 2007, to DeHoyos entertaining government officials and diplomats in Mexico and performing in Romania by invitation from the Romanian government. Together, they produce an unparalleled sound—music that can speak to anyone’s soul.
DePue/DeHoyos have performed throughout North America, opening for the Philadelphia Orchestra at Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall, performing a solo spot with the Ocean City Pops (Ocean City, NJ), and appearing on international television for the Mrs. World Pageant (Tijuana, B.C.S., MX). In addition, the pair were featured at the International Film Festival and Art Walk (Imperial City, CA), headlined the Clark State University Artist Series, and in 2007 presented a standout concert at the Stranahan Theater (Toledo, OH). Having been involved in the Bluegrass and Fiddling Championship arena for most of his life, DePue and DeHoyos became instructors at the National Oldtime Fiddling Championship in 2009, and later that year was the featured act at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Grand Master Fiddler Championship in Nashville.
Their performance is described as “extremely engaging with a virtuosic combination of classical-tinted takes on popular songs and original compositions. Their cohesion and musical chops are remarkable.”
