London Tango Orchestra, Paternoster Square, Thurs 18 July, 11.30am

The largest professional tango orchestra in the country returns to the festival after their debut last year. Come and learn the basics from professional dancers or simply sit back and enjoy the passion and drama of this most spirited art form.

Meet putside Starbucks, Paternoster Square at 11.30 am for 12 noon start. This is a free event but please donate £1 towards meet up running costs.

The London Tango Orchestra is the largest professional tango group in the country, a real "orquesta tipica" uniting leading UK tango musicians with players from Argentina. The orchestra was founded in 2009 by Caroline Pearsall and is the first of its kind in the UK.
The orchestra performs music from the rich repertoire of tango, old and new, sharing its love of tango music through concerts, milongas and workshops and cultural exchanges between musicians from Europe and Argentina.

They have played for festivals such as the City of London Festival and many milongas in the London area. In the summer of 2012 they were filmed for a documentary on tango music by the BBC.
So please come along and dance to classic tunes by Troilo, Pugliese D'Arienzo and Di Sarli or sit back and relax listening to the driving spirit and melancholia of Piazzolla and Mederos.
We promise en exotic experience filled with passion and drama!

The orchestra's current musicians are:
Caroline Pearsall (violin & direction)
Guillermo Rozenthuler (voice)
John Turville (piano)
Enrique Galassi (bass)
Jamie Barclay (violin)
Wei Wei Tan (viola)
Adam Spiers (cello)
Ian Hill (bandoneon)
Eve Cupial (bandoneon)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
