The Brisbane Tango Orchestra joins forces with Australian-born/Buenos Aires-based composer and bandoneón soloist, Owen Salomé to bring you an exciting concert of new tango music especially commissioned for this concert series.

Since the early twentieth century, Argentine tango music and the tango dance tradition have spread throughout Latin America and beyond to become a world music phenomenon thanks to notable musicians and composers such as Astor Piazzolla.

Amongst his many accolades, Owen Salomé is one of the bandoneónists of the 16th iteration of the 2 year ‘Orquesta Escuela Emilio Balcarce’ tango program in the city of Buenos Aires: the first ever Australian to hold the position.

The Brisbane Tango Orchestra (BTO) is an ensemble which Chloe Ann Williamson (Double Bassist and Artistic Director) started as a way to bring the thrilling repertoire written for tango orchestra to Queensland audiences.

Don’t miss this unprecedented opportunity to hear a concert of entirely new tango music by an Australian composer performed by a solo bandoneónist and specialist tango orchestra!
