Museum After Hours – Live Tango with the Auburn Argentinian Tango Group

June 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Members of the Tango Orchestra Club Atlanta pose for a group photograph.

As a part of the museum’s regular summer music series, “After Hours,” JCSM is proud to present a LIVE TANGO with the Auburn Tango Dancers. New to the dance? Join us for instruction from 5 to 6 p.m. From 6 to 8 p.m., we tango! This program features the Tango Orchestra Club of Atlanta with Dr. Howard Goldstein and the Auburn Argentinian Tango Group.

Space is limited, so advance reservations are strongly encouraged.   

After a turn or two, be sure to experience the museum’s exhibitions. The Museum Café and Museum Shop are open during your visit for food and unique gifts, including limited edition Audubon print scarves to complete your tango outfit.

JCSM and the Auburn Argentinian Tango Group thank Dr. John Stewart for helping to make this program possible. Museum admission is free. A five-dollar donation at the door is appreciated.

Tango Orchestra Club Atlanta (TOCA) is an Atlanta-based community orchestra of professional and trained musicians who love tango. We perform authentic Argentine tango arrangements both para escuchar (concert tangos for listening) and para bailar (tango for dancing at a milonga). Our repertory includes classic tango, tango nuevo, and contemporary tango. Our Atlanta performances have included concerts at Emory University and the Latin-American Center as well as at numerous milongas. We have also performed at Auburn University, the University of Miami, and the University of California, Riverside. Our name pays tribute not only to the city of Atlanta, but also to a famous Buenos Aires football club as well as one of the first labels to record tangos. Our acronym, however, reflects what we like to do best, namely, PLAY!
