Get out your dancing shoes and do the tango to the music of The Red Tango in the Brewery Arts Center Ballroom (second floor). The Red Tango is a talented group of five strings players. Check with the Brewery Arts Center and/or Yaples Dance Studio about tango lessons before this event, if you feel that your tango steps are a bit rusty.
The Red Tango sizzles with rhythm, class, and superb musicianship. These international string players claim the Reno Philharmonic, Reno Chamber Orchestra, and Nevada Opera as their day jobs.
The Red Tango musicians have performed or played back-up for many stars, including Luciano Pavarotti, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Josh Groban, Neil Diamond, Johnny Mathis, Smokey Robinson, Trans-Siberian Rock orchestra, Mannheim Steamroller, Frank Sinatra Jr., Celine Dion, Olivia Newton John, Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Isaac Hayes, and Echo and the Bunnymen. They also love playing at parties!
Musicians are Olga Archdekin and Bruce McBeth, vioin; Catherine Matovich, viola; Charles Taggart, cello; and Zack Teran, bass. Free.

Note: There will be an artists’ reception at intermission (about 2:00 p.m.) with the artists who produced the poster work for the festival. The reception will take place on the landing area on the second floor of the main Brewery Arts Center building (outside the Ballroom).
