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.

When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

An athletic director in Kristjan Jarvi, a dynamic soloist in Jennifer Koh, a wonderful program of Enescu, Barber, and Rachmaninoff.....What's not to love. Oh and I forgot a great orchestra performing at the top of its game,
And thanks to Goldstar for providing best seats in the house.
Parts One and Two of the program each run 36 minutes, separated by a 15-minute intermission.
AfterWords: The Thursday Oct. 31 performance is followed by a free discussion with the artists and NSO Director of Artistic Planning Nigel Boon.
