10/15/2009 - Tami Tango Trio to perform at JC
By Michael J. Brooks
The Judson College Concert and Lecture Committee is pleased to announce the performance of noted flutist Eduardo Tami and his tango band on Oct. 15.
Tami began his flute studies at the Juan Jose Castro Conservatory of Music with some outstanding Argentine musicians as teachers including Alfredo Iannelli, Raquel Arana Ines Gomez Carrillo, Djerko Spiller and Gerardo Gandini.
As a composer, producer and recorder of commercial music, he created and hosted the "Ensamble de Camara de Vicente Lopez" in 1987, supported by the city of Vicente Lopez and sponsored by several private companies.
Performing as a popular music arranger and performer, Tami began touring with several artists throughout his native country of Argentina.
Tami branched out and has toured extensively in South America and Europe. His fourth USA tour in 2008 included concerts in Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, Indiana and Virginia
The concert will feature five student couples from Judson and Marion Military Institute performing the tango after being instructed by Judson student Jill Coplen of Prattville and by the Tami dancers.
The concert and performance will be in the Alumnae Auditorium at 7 p.m.
There is no admission charge and the public is cordially invited.
