South Shore Conservatory’s Duxbury Music Festival (DMF) and Festival Director Stephen Deitz present First Tango in Duxbury, featuring DMF faculty and students and the Festival’s Performers in Residence, on Monday, July 28, 7:30 pm at the SSC’s Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 St. George Street, Duxbury. 

Whether the Argentine tango, the Brazilian samba or bossa nova, or the Cuban conga, Latin American dances have delighted native and non-native composers.  First Tango in Duxbury explores many of these dances through the music of several 20th Century or contemporary composers, including Aaron Copland, Astor Piazzolla, Will Grant Still, and Igor Stravinsky.

 

Tickets for First Tango in Duxbury are $30.  Individual tickets as well as a variety of series subscriptions are available.  For complete program, ticket and event information, visit www.duxburymusicfestival.org, call 781-934-2731, ext. 14, or follow Duxbury Music Festival on Facebook.
