Join us for a unique night of tango music, dancing, and Argentinian food and culture.
From Buenos Aires, the Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet will perform for us a concert, followed by music for dancing. They play classical tango in the style of such famous orchestras as Trolio, Pugliese, Di Sarli and Piazolla mixed with the band’s original compositions.
Pianist and band leader Alejandro Ziegler trained in composition and orchestral conducting. He performed for two years with the Buenos Aires Tango Orchestra “Orquesta escuela de Tango” under the eminent directors Emilio Balcarce and Nestor Marconi. The Alejandro Ziegler Quartet has toured extensively in Europe, exciting audiences in both concert halls and milongas. This is their first North American Tour.
