The Lorena Guillen Tango Duo Talk Upcoming Performances
It’s an entire evening of sultry tangos from Argentina and new string quartets with the sounds of the Andes and the rhythms of Mexico. The Buenos Aires native singer Lorena Guillen and her husband pianist/composer Alejandro Rutty will perform Sunday night, April 7 at 7:30 pm in Brendle. On the program: traditional tango favorites, tango Nuevo arrangements and string quartet performances. The following weekend on Saturday afternoon, April 13th at 3:00pm in Greensboro, The Lorena Guillen Tango Duo will be joined by violinists Fabian Lopez and Jacqui Carrasco—and tango dancers Ezequiel Cazanetz and Fernanda Moreira. They will be demonstrating and teaching basic tango steps. That performance will be in the Campus Ministries building on the UNC Greensboro campus. Lorena and Alejandro are both music scholars as well as great performers, and they teach music and composition respectively at UNCG. They recently performed in WFDD’s Studio A.
