Firebird Trio presents Inspiration Tango this Sunday
Immerse yourself in an afternoon of music and dance at the fabled artists colony Montsalvat as Firebird Trio tells the unique story of tango music from the 1930s Golden Age of Tango through to tango nuevo and the modern day – interweaving the desires, sorrows and spirit of this iconic Argentine art form. Concert begins at 2pm.
Included in the ticket price is an introductory Argentine tango class at 1pm (definitely not the ballroom variety) with Australian tango masters Jarny Choi and Teresa Lavers. Learn about the connection, rhythm and cadence of this improvised art form. No previous tango experience necessary. Just bring your sense of fun!
