An Evening of Ar­gen­tine Tango Mu­sic

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Who can re­sist the cap­ti­vat­ing rhythm and magic of Ar­gen­tine Tango? The Saint Lu­cia School of Mu­sic (SLSM) is proud to present lo­cal and in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned artists in ‘An Evening of Ar­gen­tine Tango Mu­sic’, the in­au­gu­ral per­for­mance at its new north­ern con­cert hall.

This hotly an­tic­i­pated event will com­mence at 7.30pm sharp on Satur­day 29th Novem­ber at the Golden Palm Event Cen­tre, Al­fiona Plaza in Rod­ney Heights (be­hind the Rod­ney Heights Su­per J su­per­mar­ket).

The Evening will be pre­sented by Ar­gen­tini­ans Lorena Guillen on vo­cals and Ale­jan­dro Rutty, an award­win­ning pi­anist, ar­ranger and com­poser. Guest artists from the SLSM fac­ulty in­clude Marie Me­d­ina, Wag­ner Trindade, Richard Payne and Fer­nando Martinez Lopez.

Dr. Rutty is As­so­ciate Pro­fes­sor of Mu­sic Com­po­si­tion at the Univer­sity of North Carolina. Guillen is a highly ac­com­plished choral di­rec­tor who reg­u­larly presents lec­ture-recitals on tango-re­lated top­ics. Her lat­est CD is en­ti­tled ‘Never Too Tango’. Both have toured and per­formed ex­ten­sively spread­ing the de­lights of tango mu­sic to au­di­ences world-wide. They are cur­rently Artists in Res­i­dence at the SLSM.

This ben­e­fit con­cert will thrill the mu­si­cal soul by of­fer­ing an el­e­gant blend of popular and “clas­si­cal” styles, of tra­di­tional and new tango sounds, com­bin­ing voice and in­stru­men­tal forces in a va­ri­ety of ar­range­ments for voice, pi­ano, gui­tar, vi­o­lin, bass and per­cus­sion.

Ad­mis­sion is only EC$50 and seats are limited. Funds raised will ben­e­fit the out­reach pro­grammes of the SLSM. To pur­chase tick­ets, please con­tact the School on 452 2473 or at lcmu­sic­school@candw.lc. Pa­trons are asked to note that the dress code will be ‘el­e­gantly ca­sual’.
