Free Concert with La Orquesta Romantica Milonguera

For those of you who missed our March Qtango Fest Opening Concert, this is your chance to catch up with everyone else. ORM has released a ton of albums and they’re one of the most popular bands to come out of the tango genre in the last decade. Their music ranges from Beatles tunes and standards like Quizas, Quizas, Quizas to traditional Argentine tango with their own unique sound. They’ll be a ten piece Orquesta direct from Buenos Aires with the exception of a guest violinist doing their entire tour with them by the name of Olga Tikhovidova. Please join us welcoming them all to ABQ and welcoming Olga back home for two nights of her 37 day tour.

Are you wondering what our concerts are like? Check out this short clip of La Juan D’Arienzo from March 2019. It was a packed house and the music was amazing!

Our mission is to bring great orchestras to Albuquerque so everyone can experience this beautiful art form for free. We’re trying to build a community of music lovers and dancers and we’d love to see you join us for this amazing concert.

Please consider making a donation if you can. Not everyone is in a position to support live music and even the smallest donation can make a difference. Your donation will help us to bring other orchestras to ABQ so everyone can experience the thrill of a live orchestra for free and it supports our outreach efforts in retirement homes and schools.

Would you like to come to the Musicality Class and Milonga featuring La Orquesta Romantica Milonguera Sept 16? You can get details for the event at this link.
