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 a wonderful concert. The program was modern and included familiar and unfamiliar pieces. The orchestra, chorus and soloists including the young male treble from the Cathedral Boys' choir were all superb. And it is always a treat at see Norman Scribner conduct and especially since he will retire after this season.
In the season opener of his final season, retiring founder and artistic director Norman Scribner will conduct some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th Century that hold special meaning for Choral Arts.
