On Saturday, Aug. 23, The Stowe Tango Festival is featuring a musical “Tango Trail.” Our trio will be performing music of the Guardia Vieja as the first stop on the trail. Attending the series of Tango Trail concerts is FREE. The concerts will take place in different venues around the village of Stowe, VT, and each represents a different stage in the history of tango. The concerts will be followed by a grand milonga that evening.
The American Bach Society has issued a call for submissions for volume 11 of Bach Perspectives, to be edited by Mary Oleskiewicz. To have a paper considered for inclusion, submission in the form of a completed essay is due Sept. 1, 2014.
The volume will contain a selection of scholarly essays on various topics surrounding the sons of J.S. Bach, which was the topic of the society’s conference held at Kenyon College in May 2014.
As part of the celebrations marking the Golden Age Tango Orchestra leader and virtuoso bandoneonist Aníbal Troilo’s centenary, MonTango invites you to a special workshop: Tango Music and Movement: Listening and Dancing to Troilo
This workshop will teach you how to listen to and recognize the distinctive musical style of Aníbal Troilo’s tango orchestra. The evolution of his style, which spans the years 1938 to 1975, offers a fascinating look at the gradual style changes in tango music and the development of the Orquesta Típica. Following the listening portion of the workshop, we will introduce carefully designed exercises in movement quality to help dancers feel and express Troilo’s special brand of phrasing and lyricism. Prerequisite: Tango 4 or equivalent (a year or more of regular classes and practice). No prior technical musical knowledge is necessary; no partner needed.
