Four-time WAMMIE winner QuinTango will appear at the Embassy of Argentina, 1600 New Hampshire Avenue, Washington, DC, in two concerts celebrating the release of QuinTango’s newest CD, To Buenos Aires with Love. Concert-goers have a choice of a gala Saturday performance with exhibition tango dancers, followed by a reception featuring Argentine wine and tango dancing, or a Sunday afternoon tea concert with a pre-concert talk and followed by tea with the performers. Limited student tickets will be available for the Sunday concert. Both concerts will include music from the new CD as well as music performed by QuinTango at their recent Command Performance at the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires for Lino Gutierrez, U.S. Ambassador to Argentina.

Saturday, May 15, 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening’s Gala Concert will include exhibition tangos by dancers Carina Losano and Pablo Repun. Following the concert, guests will join the Ambassador, musicians and dancers for a reception (brindis) with Argentine wine, empanadas and tango dancing. Dress is optional black tie.

Sunday, May 16, 4:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon’s Tea Concert will include a pre-concert talk on “Tango in the Twenties.” The audience will have an opportunity to meet the artists at the tea following the concert. Tickets are $25; limited student tickets (with student ID) will be available for $10 at the door.

Originally scheduled to coincide with the release of To Buenos Aires with Love in May of 2003, these concerts were postponed due to the illness of Bruce Steeg, QuinTango’s founding pianist whose brilliant career was posthumously honored in February with a Special Recognition WAMMIE.

A portion of the proceeds from ticket and CD sales at both concerts will go to support the Argentine charity CARITAS.
