We were then treated to a fantastic performance by professional tango dancers Simona Zaino and Hernan Catvin. As it turned out, Sarah (our violist) had already accompanied these dancers when the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland performed a "Tango Extravaganza" for Valentine's weekend in 2010 under the direction of Fionnuala Hunt. Ms Hunt had arranged a collection of tangos for solo violin and string orchestra which she released on CD with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and we performed these live with Simona and Hernan - it was an unexpected surprise to cross paths again!
We are delighted that the Society have invited Here Comes The Trio back to perform at their annual Festival which takes place from the 11-14 April 2013. If it sounds like something you'd be interested in, they hold classes every Wednesday in the Metropole Hotel and milongas (social dances) every Sunday in the Montenotte Hotel. If you'd like any more information about the Cork Argentine Tango Society and their numerous events and workshops, their website is www.corktango.com - they are always looking for new members and all levels of dancer are welcome!
