NEW BRITAIN - The globe-trotting Rosa-Laurent Duo is set to perform at the New Britain Museum of American Art.

The chamber musicians have performed classical music in venues throughout London, Hamburg, Rome and Casablanca.

Now, they return to Connecticut to play for the people of New Britain.

The duo is made up of retired Central Connecticut State University professors Linda Laurent and Gerard Rosa.

The two taught classes in music history, music theory, graduate courses and more.

They even met each other at the college campus and eventually married.

Laurent and Rosa have played together for 25 years with Laurent on piano and Rosa on violin.

They are currently planning on performing throughout New England and Paris.

But before that European tour, they plan to visit the New Britain Museum of American Art on Sunday, Sep. 9 from 3-4 p.m.

The concert is free with museum admission, which is $15 for adults, $12 for people ages 62 and up, $10 for teenagers ages 13 to 17 or anyone with a student ID.

Children under 12 are free.

For more information, call 860-229-0257. The museum is located at 56 Lexington St.
