Tángalo with the Conservatorium Community Orchestra

  • Wollongong Town Hall Corner Crown and Kembla Sts Wollongong (map)

Australia’s premiere tango quintet, Tángalo, have continued to delight both Australian and International audiences with their signature blend of Golden-era and modern tango music. The mix of sultry voices, with the combined forces of flute, guitar, double bass, violin, piano, and the gritty and awesome power of the enigmatic Argentine ‘bandoneon’, make Tángalo’s sound both instantly recognisable and unlike anything else on the Australian music scene.

Formed in 2015, the Conservatorium Community Orchestra continues a long tradition of amateur symphonic music in the region, harking back to the original Illawarra Symphony Orchestra established in the 1930s and continuing through the longstanding South Coast Orchestra. CCO made its debut in December 2015 at The Music Lounge. A spirited, energetic all ages ensemble the CCO has performed works by Shostakovich, Bizet, Borodin, Berlioz, Moncayo and Marquez.
