Alexandria-based QuinTango will be honored May 13 with the 2014 award for Artistic Excellence at the GALA Hispanic Theatre’s annual Noche de Estrellas benefit recognizing arts, community and philanthropic leaders from the Washington region.
#Held at the National Center for Latino Performing Arts, the event will honor individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the artistic community in the Washington metropolitan area.
#QuinTango, a chamber tango quintet comprised of two violins, bass, cello and piano, has initiated thousands of new fans to the music of tango by engaging audiences with their sizzling fusion of traditional South American tango repertoire and classical chamber music style.
#Under the leadership of long-time Alexandria resident and violinist Joan Singer, QuinTango has grown from a local music group to an internationally recognized touring ensemble who have performed at The White House, Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center Plaza, theaters in Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico, France, Costa Rica and throughout the United States. This summer QuinTango will tour Costa Rica, bringing 25 fans with them, including six Alexandrians.
