QUINTANGO to Perform at the Cumberland County Playhouse
Posted: Tuesday, September 7, 2010 8:01 pm
QuinTango is set to perform at the Cumberland County Playhouse on September 17 at 8:00pm. This concert with sizzling energy and contagious passion is sponsored by Jacqueline’s Boutiques.
QuinTango was formed in 1995 when five passionate, music-loving friends got together to read through some tango music. As they worked their way through charts of unknown tangos, a chemical reaction took place-a fire started in their bellies. The group made up of two violins, cello, bass and piano gained national attention in 1999 when they were invited to give a Command Performance at the White House along with Robert Duvall, bandoneonist Raul Jaurena, and dancer/actor Pablo Veron.
Along with QuinTango, we will have Victoria Sarquisse and Federico Jorquera, two Argentine championship Tango dancers. Victoria and Federico will be offering a Master Class on Friday afternoon from 4:30-5:30pm. We recommend the class for teens and adults due to tango flirtiness. Space is limited, so please call Buster Irvin at 931.484.5000 ext 226 for more information or to register for this class. Also, there will be a post-performance class for adults. No registration for this class is required. You will get the chance to learn a few tango steps on stage and dance with the band. Come join us for a tango-fun evening!
