Don’t miss the only Sunshine Coast performance of the brilliant Brisbane Tango Orchestra.
Stopping off in beautiful Maleny for one show only before continuing on their extensive Queensland tour, this special concert will showcase the virtuoso bandoneón playing of Owen Salomé direct from Buenos Aires.
The bandoneón, the accordion-type instrument intimately associated with the seductive sounds of Argentine tango, will be featured heavily in an exciting concert programme that includes new tango music especially commissioned for this series of performances.
Since the early twentieth century, Argentine tango music and the tango dance tradition have spread throughout Latin America and beyond to become a World Music phenomenon, thanks to notable musicians and composers, such as Astor Piazzolla.
Owen Salomé has been a devotee to Astor Piazzolla, and all things tango, for many years. Amongst his many accolades, Owen is one of the bandoneonists of the 16th iteration of the two-year ‘Orquesta Escuela Emilio Balcarce' tango program in the city of Buenos Aires.
The Brisbane Tango Orchestra (BTO) is an ensemble which Chloe Ann Williamson (Double Bassist and Artistic Director) started as a way to bring the thrilling repertoire written for tango orchestra to Queensland audiences.
Don’t miss this unprecedented opportunity to hear a concert of new tango music by an Australian composer, performed by a solo bandoneónist and specialist tango orchestra!
This performance is proudly presented by Red Chair with the support of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
