Combining excellent arrangement, adventurous repertoire, and the bonus of an accomplished soprano, One Great City Duo brings a truly imaginative approach to their programming. The San Francisco Examiner acclaims One Great City Duo as an “innovative new duo… One Great City brings a journey of discovery to every recital they prepare.” One Great City Duo crystalized in 2011, and immediately began building a repertoire unique to them, combining Alexandra’s abilities both as a guitarist and a soprano with their love and dedication to chamber music. One Great City Duo recently released their debut album, titled “Excursions,” produced by their mentor Sérgio Assad at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California.

One Great City Duo plays a pair of matching guitars by Bay Area luthier Glenn Canin.

One Great City Duo is a fiscally-sponsored affiliate of San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the service of chamber music in California. They are recipients of SFFCM’s 2016 Musical Grant Program.
