Carel's surprise visit

What a treat it was for us on Monday evening! Carel Kraayenhof (bandoneonist from Holland with an Argentine heart) was in town for concerts with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and fortunately for us, was interested in making a contribution to the Adelaide tango community before heading off to Perth, then Sydney.

Passionate about tango, especially those of Pugliese, Carel delighted us and accompanied our dancing with various tangos, Romance de Barrio (vals) and even Milonga de mis Amores. But his interpretations of Gallo Ciego and Piazzolla's Adios Nonino were utterly sublime. All this, while seated on a stool in our humble Baptist Hall (which we discovered has great acoustics) with his sheet music spread out on the floor! Check out the photo gallery.

Next time he's in town remember to buy him a Guinness. He enjoyed his pint at the Daniel O'Connell.

Thanks so much, Michelle and Greg, for arranging it all. It was truly a night to remember.

Pat.
