Live Tango Music on a Grand Scale

Pan American Symphony

Just by chance, I was invited to a dinner to hear the Pan American Symphony near Washington D.C.  I was not expecting that much--to tell you the truth--but they were very good.  The bandoneonista from Uruguay was featured with a new tango he had composed, which had won a Latin Music Grammy award.  

It was a magical evening to hear live tango on such a grand scale.  What a shame not to be able to dance!

Luckily I sat in the back of the room and was able to get up and at least feel the music in my feet.  So here is a little taste of what I saw and heard.

Nice! Too bad her heel got caught in the hem of her dress after the lift. It must have felt awful with the constant tugging with each step.
