The Choral Arts Society of Washington brings the passionate music and dance of Argentina to the Kennedy Center. Tango! Soul and Heart begins with two spiritual pieces -- Lamentations of Jeremiah, a sacred a cappella motet by Argentina's most famous composer, Alberto Ginastera, and Luis Bacalov's Misa Tango, a stunning mass that features the iconic sounds of the accordion-like bandonéon. The second half of the program finds participants performing traditional and classic tango works by such composers as Astor Piazzolla, while talented guest artists showcase the dance of passion in a dazzling display.

Carl Orff's wildly popular and instantly recognizable Carmina Burana is a masterful blending of ancient Latin texts with visceral rhythms and haunting harmonies, evoking images of ritualistic dance and ribald frolicking that will awaken and arouse your senses. This intoxicating work is a not-to-be missed musical experience that is sure to be a sellout.
