Join us at Merkin Hall for a night of tango to indulge your senses with the elegance, passion, and sensuality of the music and dance of the Argentinean Tango. Performers include the 2018 Grammy Winners for Best Latin Jazz Album, composer/pianist Pablo Ziegler & SMS's own bandoneonist Hector Del Curto, pianists Orli Shaham and Shai Wosner, Grammy Winner Maestro David Robertson conducting the SMS Tango Orchestra, MacArthur Genius Award winner Francisco Nuñez conducting the SMS High School chorus, and Tango dancers Ana Padrón and Diego Blanco. All proceeds will support Special Music School's academic and music programs. Wine reception and post-concert Tango dance party included!
