Society for the Performing Arts (SPA)—bringing the world’s best to Houston—presents Latin Grammy-winning pianist Pablo Ziegler and his Trio For New Tango.

With his Trio for New Tango, Latin Grammy-winning pianist, composer, and arranger Pablo Ziegler delivers stripped-down, intimate arrangements of his essential Nuevo Tango repertoire, offering a raw, elemental concert music program. He returns to Houston for one night only with a performance that will feature Hector Del Curto (bandoneon) and Claudio Ragazzi (guitar).

Prior to the Pablo Ziegler performance, see performances by Casa Argentina de Houston scholarship recipients and winners of the Rene Casarsa Young Musicians Competition:

Joon Lee, clarinetist performing El Apache Argentino by Manuel Arostegui

Eliza Masewicz, soprano singing Alfonsina y el Mar by Ariel Ramirez and Felix Luna

Travis Bostick, pianist; Kevin Han, cellist; Wilson Hui, violinist, performing as a trio, Astor Piazzolla’s Oblivion

Artists accompanied by Rene Casarsa of Casa Argentina de Houston

"To the devotee of Nuevo Tango, a performance by Pablo Ziegler is a deep experience, a trip to the heart of this music... He is a sort of musical brujo, a conjurer who can make all within earshot a believer in his message." -NY Jazz Report.

"It is called Nuevo Tango for its blending of jazz and the more traditional tango. But in the hands of Pablo Ziegler, it is, above all labels, transcendent music." -Montecristo Magazine.

“Just as a really suave tango dancer seems not to move with feet but on wheels, Ziegler skates the keyboard.” -The Los Angeles Times.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.

Presented by Society for the Performing Arts, this performance is sponsored in part by the City of Houston through the Miller Theatre Advisory Board, as well as Reliant, an NRG company; H-E-B; United; and JW Marriott.
