Discover the extraordinary musical riches of Argentina at this special event! Join us for the Midwest premiere of a major new work, The Wanderer by Ezequiel Viñao, co-commissioned by Chanticleer and Chicago a cappella. Our special twelve-voice ensemble also performs music by Ginastera, Gustavino, and new CSO composer-in-residence Osvaldo Golijov. We'll end with traditional Argentine tangos, complete with tango dancers!
Guest Artists: Daniel Noce and Ramona Nita, dancers
The Wanderer was commissioned as part of the national series of works from Meet The Composer Commissioning Music/USA, which is made possible by generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Helen F. Whitaker Fund, and the Target Foundation.
