Tango Origins and Passion – Phoenix Collective Concert 4

9 December 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm AEDT

$15 – $35

The Central Coast Conservatorium presents Phoenix Collective 4th Concert in its 2018 series, “Tango Origins & Passion”.

A concert to set to reignite your fire. Exploring the birth of Argentinean Tango and father of Nuevo Tango, Astor Piazzolla.

Joining forces, acclaimed national and international musicians: Dan Russell (Phoenix Collective Director and violin), Maggie Ferguson (bandoneon) and Katie Robinson (piano).

The ensemble will stage early and traditional works from the birthplace of tango, Buenos Aires, and by the works by the father of Nuevo Tango, Astor Piazzolla.

“I love an opportunity to share my passion for Argentine tango music with my audiences and colleagues, says Maggie Ferguson, Australian violinist and bandoneonista who studied orchestral tango at Orquesta Escuela de Tango Emilio Balcarces in Buenos Aires.

The emphasis in this music lies very much on interpretation. Audiences will experience the complex rhythms and abrupt pauses of intensely intimate tango.

Passionate, energetic and logical: Tango ignites emotions within the body. It lures its listeners to develop a deep connection between themselves, the music and the environment.

“Come on a musical journey with us through the 20th century, incorporating tango history, styles, composer anecdotes and some joyous audience participation”  – Phoenix Collective Tango Origins & Passion

Supported by the Central Coast Conservatorium and NSW Government under the Regional Conservatorium Grants Funding.
