UNCA's 18th Annual Concerts on the
Quad Continues June 12
The New York Tango Trio brings the blues of Argentina to UNCA’s 18th annual Concerts on the Quad outdoor entertainment series at 7 p.m. June 12. The concert is free and open to the public.
Widely recognized as the foremost tango orchestra in the United States, the New York Tango Trio combines the classical tango tradition with a contemporary sound influenced by jazz and classical music. Uruguayan bandoneonist Raúl Jaurena, the musical director of the trio, adds a true New York element to the arrangements: the use of improvisation, which is rarely heard in traditional tango. Argentine-born bassist, composer and tango scholar Pablo Aslan and Venezuela-born singer Marga Mitchell join Jaurena to create the group’s innovative, sultry sound. Dazzling tango dancers Liliana Castro and Harby Gonzalez will join the trio for the performance.
The public is invited to bring picnics, blankets and lawn chairs. With between 500 and 2,000 people attending each concert, lawn-chair seating will be separate from blanket seating in order to preserve sight lines; please look for signage when arriving on the quad.
The series continues each Monday night through July 17.
For more information about the Concerts on the Quad series, call the UNCA Student Activities Office at 828/251-6584.
