Salt Lake pianist Douglas Dickson will be performing today at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., along with Jane Langley. The duo-pianists bill themselves as Duodecaphonia, and they joined forces in 1987 at Yale University, where both were earning master's degrees. Their recent performances include the Catholic University of America in Washington and Steinway Hall in Salt Lake City. Dickson graduated in music from Princeton University and has concertized widely throughout the United States and in Japan.
