Concert brings spicy sounds of Argentina to Calgary

Calgarians looking to get a taste of the sounds of Argentina are heading to the University of Calgary Sunday night for a concert presented by Calgary Pro Musica.

Mulitmedia concert to feature solo cello, film, spoken word and dance

Calgarians looking to get a taste of the sounds of Argentina are heading to the University of Calgary Sunday night for a concert presented by Calgary Pro Musica.

Te Amo Argentina is part of the organization's new Horizons Series and will take place at the Rozsa Centre. The sold-out show – the brainchild of Canadian cellist Antonio Lysy – will feature solo cello, chamber works, film, spoken word and dance.

"It's a quasi-autobiographical musical journey of Lysy's life when he lived in Argentina," said Dean O'Brien, artistic director for Calgary Pro Musica. "I think it will be a very exciting way to start the Horizons Series."

The concert will also feature tango dancers and Leonardo Barrionuevo, a choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance.

It marks the start of Calgary Pro Musica's regular concert season, which will include performances by North America's premier win quintet Imani Wins as well as from the Ying Quartet.

Tickets are sold out for Sunday night's show but will be available for future performances on their website.
