In the Embrace of Tango: Argentinian and Jewish Tango
This program explores Argentine tango and its crossed-path with Jewish culture: tango in the pre-WWII Europe, later in the ghettos, in the early 20th century NYC and Buenos Aires Yiddish theater and through compositions of the first generation of Argentine-Jewish composers.
Collaboration with UNCG University Chorale.
