A Musical Feast

Saturday October 15th at 7pm
Montante Cultural Center, Canisius College

ArtsCanisius and A Musical Feast are thrilled to host an international concert and dance performance this semester called “Tango Nocturna.” The event will take place on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center.

Organized by Moshe Shulman, a founder of Buffalo Tango Orkestra and publisher of “Three to Tango – Basic Music Theory for Tango Dancers,” this event is sure to be sensational. Shulman is a Russian-born Israeli composer, and violin, viola and bandoneon player. Shulman will be accompanied by Miranda Shulman, violin; Fabrizio Mocata from Italy on piano; double-bassist James Marone; and Romina Bianco, an Argentinian vocalist. The two tango performers – also from Argentina – are Guillermina Quiroga and Mariano Loguidice. They are world-renowned for their stunning performances.

Tickets are $15 for general admission, $7 for faculty and staff, and $5 for students. They can be purchased online at canisius.edu/artscanisius or at the door.

Program:
Reflections is a musical commentary of a year in silence. Throughout the pandemic, musical voices have been filtered through masks, electronic channels, and the radically shifted world. Here, we reflect on the isolation and celebrate the return of live music. Featuring new works by Stephen Solook and Tiffany Du Mouchelle created in response to the events of the past year, the program is a reflection of their musical growth during this time.
