The Argentine tango composer and virtuoso bandoneón player Astor Piazzolla is considered one of the most important figures in the history of tango. Piazzolla's centenary falls in 2021, and we will celebrate his legacy by performing his tango nuevo music alongside traditional Argentine tangos from composers such as Juan d'Arienzo, Carlos Gardel, and Osvaldo Pugliese. All members of the ensemble will also interact with master tangoists and participate in free dance lessons. We will live and breathe the tango!

When Offered Fall.
