The collaboration between Ann Hobson Pilot – the former principal harpist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra – and SCD Artistic Director and choreographer Leymis Bolaños Wilmott will showcase a dynamic passage through the music of Astor Piazzolla, an extraordinary composer of tango music. Pilot’s arrangement for the harp, violin (Marcus Ratzenboeck) and bandoneon (Rodolfo Zanetti), inspired by Piazzola’s compositions, infuses the composer’s melodies into a contemporary mix of tango music, filled with jazz and classical influences. Through an invigorating visual and emotional experience, SCD brings a passionate and poignant performance to the Historic Asolo Theater with Piazzolla.
