PRESIDIO SESSIONS – Friday Evenings at 6 pm

In the intimate atmosphere of a house concert, experience jazz, contemporary, and classical music, and enjoy opportunities to converse with performers and each other. Offered in partnership with the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music.

Redwood Tango Ensemble is a sextet dedicated to both traditional Argentine tango music and original tango compositions by leader and bandoneonist Charles Gorczynski. The ensemble’s arrangements are inspired by the styles of Anibal Troilo, Juan D’Arienzo, Carlos DiSarli, Osvaldo Pugliese and other master orchestras in tango, which has made Redwood Tango popular among the dance communities in the Bay Area and on tour. The ensemble was the featured orchestra for Chicago Tango Week 2013 and 2015, and has performed for milongas in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Montreal, London, NYC and dozens of cities in between.
