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 delightful evening of lively music begins with the choral and orchestral splendor of Anton Bruckner’s magnificent Te Deum, followed by the lively Latin rhythms of Constant Lambert’s The Rio Grande, a concerto for piano, chorus and orchestra which Maestro Scribner describes as “one joyous romp!” Joseph Holt will be the featured pianist for Rio and also shares the conductor's podium along with Maestro Scribner.
