The Piazzolla Project explores “Nuevo Tango” in Brandon 

PIAZZOLLA PROJECT

Saturday, Aug. 22 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — The Piazzolla Project brings together the talents of four unique musicians to explore the diverse sounds of Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla’s “Nuevo Tango.” At Brandon Music on Aug. 22 at 7:30 p.m., tango fans will recognize the famous milonga “Oblivion” and the haunting song “Los Pajaros Perdidos,” among other favorites arranged and adapted for and by the Piazzolla Project musicians.

Two husband and wife duos joined forces to establish the Piazzolla Project: Annemieke McLane, born and raised in the Netherlands where she completed her master of music, has a rich repertoire of piano solo, chamber music and art songs and her husband, accordionist Jeremiah McLane, a composer and musician of a mix of musical styles who has a masters degree from the New England Conservatory. Sarah Cullins, a graduate of the New England Conservatory-Tufts University double-degree program, is a versatile soprano who regularly performs opera, oratorio and symphonic repertoire and her husband, Colombian guitarist Daniel Gaviria, who earned national acclaim in Colombia as a winner of several guitar and chamber music competitions and graduated from the Universidad del Rosario in Bogota.

Astor Piazzolla is best known for being the father and inventor of Tango Nuevo – a revolutionary new genre in which jazz rhythms and classical music were infused into tango. Tango Nuevo, at first, was strongly rejected in his home country of Argentina, but eventually was appreciated and celebrated for the genius it was throughout the world.

This event celebrates Vermont Arts 2015, in celebration of public funding for the arts.

Concert tickets are $20. Venue is BYOB. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon. For more info, call 802-247-4295 or e-mail info@brandon-music.net.
