Misa a Buenos Aires – “Misatango”
featuring Giovanni Parra
The Central Oregon Mastersingers present Martín Palmeri’s "Misa a Buenos Aires." The choir will be joined by the Salem String Quartet, Colombian bandoneonista Giovanni Parra, local mezzo-soprano Katrina Hays, and dancers from Tango Aficionados of Bend. Inspired by Argentina’s traditional tango and Astor Piazzolla’s tango nuevo, this “Tango Mass” is an exhilarating experience!
About the program:
The Misatango, as it is called, will be sung in Latin by the Mastersingers, conducted by Christian Clark. Incorporating the traditional elements of a classical choral mass, its structure is enlivened by the music of the tango as written for the classical stage. Additional music from Argentina also will be performed by the Mastersingers, Central Oregon’s premier choral ensemble.
Composer Martín Palmeri composed the Misatango in 1995/1996. He was influenced by Astor Piazzolla's “new tango,” which incorporates contemporary forms and musical developments of the tango.
