Delight in this sizzling, mind-opening fusion of traditional South American tango repertoire and classical chamber music. The group brings its own interpretations to this evocative music, synonymous with the eternal dance of romance.

QuinTango, a chamber tango quintet (two violins, bass, cello and piano) has brought thousands of new fans to the music of tango by engaging audiences with its sizzling, mind-opening fusion of traditional South American tango repertoire and classical chamber music style. In keeping with its mission to bring tango to new audiences, QuinTango concerts blend musicianship, audience connection, and great storytelling. Patrons leave a QuinTango performance with not only a new-found love of tango, but with an understanding of the heart and history of this art form. All QuinTango’s repertoire is originally created for the group, with most of the musical arrangements crafted by top-ranking tango composers in Argentina.  Concerts usually include 14 -18 tangos, many with short narratives introductions.  Audiences meet Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, gauchos, poets and broken-hearted lovers as the tangos unfold in a kaleidoscope of emotions and historical settings.
