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.

This was, as all Norman Scribner's programs are, a truly magnificent evening. The soloists were of operatic quality and sensitivity and the choir as always sang beautifully.
We all had a wonderful evening with a warm Christmas spirit prevailing.
Experience the warmth of the season from the opening processional to the final notes of this cherished concert. The whole family will delight in the majestic sound of the chorus, full orchestra, and soloist Kelley Nassief as they perform soaring renditions of beloved carols, classic masterpieces, and favorite sing-alongs at the height of the holiday season.
