Lawrence University World Music Series: “Tango Nuevo: The Music of Astor Piazzolla”

Event Date: March, 07 2014

Event Times: 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Argentine performer/composer/arranger JP Jofre, today’s premiere bandoneónista, joins the Lawrence University Jazz Ensemble in concert.

The performance will feature five arrangements by Fred Sturm, director of jazz studies at Lawrence, of tangos by the legendary Astor Piazzolla and two of Jofre’s own original works.

Jofre, praised by the New York Times for his “soulful” playing of the bandoneón, has toured internationally and in 2013 released his debut album “Hard Tango,” featuring Grammy Award winners Paquito D’Rivera, a master of Latin jazz, and Fernando Otero, composer and pianist. Free and open to the public.
