Western New Mexico University President’s Chamber Music Series Continues With an Argentine-Inspired Willy Sucre and Friends Concert
The Albuquerque-based QTango ensemble will be featured in a concert on the Western New Mexico University campus (1000 W. College Ave.) on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018. Beginning at 7 p.m., the audience in Light Hall Theater will explore the history of tango from French composer Bizet to Argentine composer Piazzolla.

The program features music from the parlors of wealthy patrons of classically trained musicians in Vienna and from the bars, streets and tenements of Buenos Aires, a melting pot of cultures on the Río de la Plata.

“I love music that reaches into your soul,” said Faye McCalmont, Special Assistant to the President for Cultural Affairs at Western New Mexico University, who organizes the series.

Anchored by violist Willy Sucre, this group includes violinist Olga Tikhovidova, pianist Natalia Tikhovidova, and double bassist Jeremy Sment, and third generation tango musician and opera singer, Erskine Maytorena, who founded QTango. Special guest Rodolfo Marcelo Zanetti will join on the bandoneon, tango’s free-reed instrument with bellows and buttons.

The members of QTango specialize in the traditional tango and believe that “every song is a novella; a story of love, betrayal, desperation and hope,” and they give audiences intimate experiences, providing an acoustic resonance that allows people to journey into the romance, passion and elegance of tango.

“Tango is exciting! I’m so happy to be bringing this group to Silver City. I know those who attend will experience a wonderful musical evening,” McCalmont said.

This concert is part of the second annual President’s Chamber Music Series of which James Edd Hughs/Edward Jones Investments is the premier sponsor. The Western Institute for Lifelong Learning and the Western New Mexico University Office of Cultural Affairs co-sponsor the series.

Tickets cost $15 each or are free to Mustang Card holders, and season passes cost $60. They can be purchased online at wnmu.edu/culture or in person at the Western New Mexico University Office of Cultural Affairs in Hunter Hall.
