Tango Romantico

  • Kaneko 11111 Jones Street Omaha, NE, 68154 United States (map)

Celebrate the drama and allure of tango at our next Eko Nova concert at KANEKO! Brilliant musicians, led by Omaha Symphony Principal Flute Maria Harding, romance you with the sultry, seductive tango and music inspired by its rhythms. A “tango band” performs music by Astor Piazzolla and more. The perfect prelude to Valentine’s Day!

Also enjoy dance demonstrations by Vintage Ballroom’s Rebekah and Derek, an invitation to try the tango, samplings of Argentinean wine, and luscious chocolates from Chocolat Abeille in the Old Market.
