The internationally acclaimed Quartet comprises of a piano, double bass, violin and a bandoneon, the traditional accordion-type instrument that is the signature of Argentine Tango music. Their unique danceable style has made them a popular ensemble and they are in demand at tango festivals around the world.

Selections of music from several decades will be played, featuring the works of Osvaldo Pugliese, Francisco Canaro, and Carlos Di Sarli and other greats from the golden era of tango as well as some contemporary and original compositions. Each venue will provide both a space for dancers as well as concert seating.

The shows are set for the St. Andrews Church hall in Kaslo on February 5, the Silverton Memorial Hall on February 6 and the Shambhala Performance Centre in Nelson on February 7. All shows begin at 8 p.m.

This tour is co-sponsored by the Silverton Lake Gallery Society and Selkirk College Music School.
