7:00PM Concert - "Homage to Tango"

From the suburbs of Buenos Aires, to the salons of European high society, tango dance and music evolved as a unique fusion of Afro-Spanish rhythms and European styles in the melting pot of turn-of-the-century Buenos Aires, flooded by immigrants attracted by the wealth and vast spaces of Argentina.

For this production, the Greater Grand Forks Symphony Orchestra invites some of its former members (including Joel Tosta Alarcon, former concertmaster, presently teaching in Delaware, and Vinicius Sant'Anna, winner of the GGFSO Young Artist Concerto Competition, first violinist of the Griffon Quartet, Madison, WI) and guest musicians (Dr. Nariaki Sugiura, piano; Robert Moldovan, double bass) to join in celebration of the heritage of the Argentine Tango, and the work of Astor Piazzolla, who elevated it to the level of an international concert music genre. Dr. Alejandro Drago will solo and conduct in a program consisting of his own original pieces and arrangements.
