The Triangle Jewish Chorale Presents
In the Embrace of the Tango
Sunday, February 24, 2019 3:00 p.m.
Levin Jewish Community Center, 1937 W. Cornwallis Rd., Durham
Perhaps no dance form other than Salomé with her seven veils is as alluring and sensuous as the tango! Originating in lower-class neighborhoods of Buenos Aires and Montevideo at the turn of the 20th century, the tango was fruitfully influenced by an admixture of cultural traditions, including the violin technique of various Jewish new immigrants. The Triangle Jewish Chorale and the Lorena Guillen Tango Ensemble are proud to present a representative sampling of tango music, from classics of the repertoire by Jewish-Argentinian composers to tango songs created for the New York Yiddish theater and pre-WW2 European versions inspired by the recently exported Argentinian tango.
A tango dance demonstration/lesson by Alicia and Eduardo is at 2:30 pm in the lobby, followed by the concert at 3:00 pm in the hall.
