Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2-hot-2-tango-concert-milonga-tickets-85587084273?aff=2hot2tangocom

In their 70-minute show, “2 Hot 2 Tango”, the acclaimed bandoneon-piano duo Ben Bogart and Winnie Cheung take you on an emotional journey through musical treasures — both known and undiscovered — of Argentina’s great tango composers.

With wit and charisma, the performers draw audiences into a musical conversation between the piano and the plaintive, provocative bandoneon. Tango aficionados and newcomers alike will fall under the spell of the drama, yearning and romantic sparks of these musical gems as the artists conjure them to life.
