Don’t miss the PREMIERE of a new tango orchestra, TIPICA MESSIEZ, the only active “orquesta tipica” in the United States. The new orchestra is led by astoundingly talented pianist-composer-arranger, Emiliano Messiez. We are pretty sure that this is soon going to be your favorite live orchestra to dance to!
In addition to Maestro Messiez, the orchestra features Raul Jaurena (bandoneon), Javier Sánchez (bandoneon), Rodolfo Marcelo Zanetti Vía (bandoneon), Sami Merdinian (violin), Sumire Violet (violin), Nastasja Vojinović (violin), and Pablo Lanouguere (bass).

Last year, we found the perfect venue for our festival, and are excited to return. We will have use of the entire Lithuanian Music Hall Association, and it’s more than 10,000 square feet of program space, during the four days of our festival.
…and more to come!
