“There is no need to build a labyrinth when the entire universe is one.” —Jorge Luis Borges
Labyrinths can be places for getting lost, for spiritual wanderings, or paths towards finding ourselves. This concert of musical labyrinths invites you to lose yourself in the musical riddles of J.S. Bach, the libraries of Jorge Luis Borges, and the seductive steps of Astor Piazzolla’s tangos and songs. Who knows what you might find…
*Bring your dance shoes and stay for a Milonga (tango social dance) after the concert, hosted by Carlos Urrego and Maureen Muñoz !
