A Night of Tango attracted more than 1,000 patrons at the magnificent Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The concert was a huge hit with both audiences and critics alike.
KCMetropolis wrote a marvelous review of the concert, calling it, “one for the ages.” The writer went on to say, “With fourteen selections (only one of which was by a composer other than Piazzolla), each was a highlight with so many commendable individual and ensemble performance aspects, one could write a dissertation on this evening’s performance.” To read the full article, click here: http://kcmetropolis.org/issue/may-1-2013/article/passion-for-piazzolla
