Redwood Tango Ensemble is hosting a concert and milonga in San Francisco! A one-time event not to be missed!

RTE has been in that liminal state moving towards contemporary and original tango music, with both an ear towards the current tango scene in Argentina and a personal style developed here in the SF Bay Area.

The group was a recent recipient of a composition grant through the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music Musical Grant Program, a positive and forward-thinking force for the arts in the bay. Bandoneonist Charles Gorczynski wrote six new pieces for the ensemble that push the musicians in wildly new directions, and that look to bridge the gap between contemporary tango and original/local chamber music composition.

After the new works we will clear the chairs and host a milonga (tango social dance) with both live traditional tango sets and DJ, including a short class with Homer and Cristina Ladas. All are welcome here, dancers and listeners, this is a celebration!

8pm-8:40: Concert of new works
8:40-9:10: Lesson with Homer and Cristina Ladas
9:10-11:30: Live music milonga! With DJ Homer Ladas

Cost: $10 - $15 suggested donation
